  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoon ketchup
  • ¼ cup scallion thinly slice
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Rub salt on both sides of the salmon and place it skin side down on a lined baking sheet. Sprinkle black pepper on the top side of the salmon.
  • Apply the mayonnaise on the salmon, followed by a layer of ketchup on top. Remember to apply more on the thicker side of the salmon. Let it sit for 10 minutes before baking (you can skip this step if you are in a hurry).
  • Bake the salmon for 15 minutes. In the meantime, mix scallion and cilantro together in a bowl.
  • Once baking is complete, remove the tray from the oven and immediately top with scallion and cilantro.
