Divine Baked Salmon Recipe in a creamy Alfredo Sauce! It is one of my favorite salmon recipes aside from smoked salmon that is served cold. Learn how to bake salmon in the oven with the right seasonings and perfectly tart salmon sauce!
1 1/2cupsheavy cream
3slicesWhite American Cheese
2tsp minced garlic
1/8 tspblack pepper
How to make Baked Salmon:
Rub the mayonnaise and garlic salt into the fillet. Marinade the salmon for 4-7 hours or overnight.
Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Place salmon diagonally onto a foiled-lined 18x13 baking sheet and slice into 1-inch pieces.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the paprika. Pour over the salmon and evenly coat the fillet with the butter sauce.
Bake salmon for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the alfredo sauce. Mix together the parmesan cheese, cornstarch, garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder; set aside. Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan and whisk in the dry mix. Stir in the American cheese, garlic, and capers until cheese melts. Set aside.
Using a spatula carefully transfer the fillets to a serving dish and ladle alfredo sauce over the center. Garnish with dill. Serve.
Substitute capers by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white distilled vinegar to the alfredo sauce. I used Mezzetta non-pareil capers. It adds amazing tartness!
Charred Lemon Slices: For an extra pretty presentation, sear the rims of thinly sliced lemons!
For a lighter salmon hue add 1/2 tsp paprika to the melted butter.
