This is a recipe that I have developed It is super simple and easy.
Preheat the oven to 350
4-6 Salmon portions about 5 oz each (Thawed if frozen)
place salmon on a baking sheet
season with salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped chives
1/2 cup Mayonaise
1 1/2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
1 small garlic clove chopped or a small sprinkle of garlic powder
mix ingredients together in a small bowl
spread topping mix over the fish
sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
for fish that is about 1 1/2 inches thick bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes. If it is more like 1 inch thick you will need about 8-10 minutes. A general rule of thumb for baked fish is about 8 minutes per inch thickness.

Telling when fish is done can be tricky. Here are some pointers.
1. It should flake apart when touched on the corner. Do NOT use the flake test in the center. If you wait for it to flake in the center it is overdone and will be dry.
2. If you want to use an instant read thermometer 145 is the temp to look for.
3. I also use a look test. You can see a color and texture change.
Fish is not as hard to cook as people make it out to be. Try it today.
