Salmon after grilling on Bake-O-Glide
Topped with a thin layer of mayonnaise

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 our recipe of choice.

Thanks to Julia for giving us permission to publish this recipe. www.ibelieveicanfry.com/ Do take a look at her blog, it is a must for foodies.
