I had the pleasure of  having dinner with my daughter and son-in-law in their home.  This was the first time I had a chance to see the newlyweds working together in the kitchen.  They did a great job and the food was excellent!

Ashley & Mike

Michael prepared his “special” baked salmon.  He managed to get it done while talking to me, watching the dog and staying out of Ashley’s way while she prepared her side dishes (this guy has potential).  The salmon was flaky and flavorful, and inspired me to dig out my salmon recipe to post here during my lunch break.

I live in Maryland and we use Old Bay on everything, and when we do it gets prefixed with Maryland.  So here is Maryland Baked Salmon, very simple and quick.

Maryland Baked Salmon

  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dill Weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon  Onion Powder
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 1 pound salmon fillets
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix seasonings in small bowl.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. Place fish, skin-side down, in lightly greased baking pan. Lightly brush fish with oil.  Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over fish.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
