Julia, the author of the recipe blog always publishes interesting and original recipes and this is no exception. The salmon is livened up by using a spicy rub and then sealed in mayonnaise before is is oven baked, so all the moisture is retained. It's then grilled to get a nice finish.

We regularly have salmon and this may possibly be our recipe of choice.

You can add a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of lemon zest to the top of the salmon fillet, before you sprinkle the rub.

Chef's note

Use Bake-O-Glide instead of greaseproof paper, if you have it.
