Everything Bagel Salmon

SERVES

4

PREP TIME

10 min

COOK TIME

10 min

Ingredients

1½ teaspoons grated lemon zest

1½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons avocado oil mayonnaise

4 (6-ounce) wild-caught salmon fillets, skin-on

2 tablespoons avocado oil, divided

3 to 4 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF; place a large cast-iron skillet in the oven as it preheats.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest and juice with the mayonnaise. Pat the salmon thoroughly dry. Brush the fish all over with 1 tablespoon of the avocado oil and place on a cutting board or platter. Spread the mayo mixture over the top of the salmon; sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the everything bagel seasoning and lightly pat to adhere. You want the mayo mixture completely covered with the seasoning; sprinkle on the remaining tablespoon of seasoning, if needed.

  3. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven, place over high heat, and swirl in the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the salmon skin side down and cook for 2 minutes; this helps crisp the skin. Transfer to the oven and roast until the fish is medium-rare in the center, 2 to 5 minutes (depending on thickness). You can also cut it open to check for doneness; the center should be moist and slightly darker. Serve hot.

RECIPE NOTES

In general, salmon needs 4 to 6 minutes of total cooking time per half inch of thickness to reach medium-rare. Use that as a guide, and don’t forget to factor in the two minutes of cooking time when searing the skin. When in doubt, it’s better to undercook it than overcook it; you can always give it another minute or two of heat if it’s too rare for you.
