Easy Baked Autumn Salmon and Mushrooms with Mayonnaise

Easy Baked Autumn Salmon and Mushrooms with Mayonnaise

This is a very easy recipe and looks gorgeous. Nobody will know it's so easy. Just bake the salmon in the oven and that's it.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Salmon fillets
Shiitake mushrooms
Shimeji mushrooms
1/2 packet
1 tablespoon
▲Soy sauce
2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon
4-8 tablespoons (to your taste)
☆Pizza cheese
a small handful
3 tablespoons
Fresh parsley
optional (adds colour to the dish)
Lemon or kabosu citrus
optional (makes it sharper)


1. Slice the shiitake mushrooms and onion. Separate the shimeji mushrooms into 2 to 3 pieces. Preheat the oven to 480°F/250°C.
2. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt on the salmon fillets and leave to stand for 10-15 minutes. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a pan and fry the onion and mushrooms.
3. When the onion is translucent, add the ▲ ingredients and cover to steam. In this photo, I used buna-shimeji instead of normal shimeji mushrooms because it was cheap.
4. Uncover the lid and evaporate the excess water. Spread out on a heatproof dish.
5. Combine the ☆ ingredients. This is my almighty mayonnaise sauce. I added chopped parsley for colour.
6. Pat dry the salmon fillets with kitchen paper and brown both sides with a tablespoon of oil in a pan. Transfer to a heatproof dish. You don't need to cook through at this point.
7. Pour the ☆ sauce over the salmon and bake in a 480°F/250°C oven for 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle lemon juice to sharpen the taste of the dish before you eat.
