  • 2 lb Salmon cut into fillets
  • ½ tbsp Soy Sauce
  • ½ tbsp Sesame Oil
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • 4 tbsp Japanese Mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp Rice Vinegar
  • ½ tsp Sriracha Optional


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • After the mixture is combined, rub the mixture onto all sides of the salmon fillets.
  • Place the salmon onto a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • While the salmon is being baked, stir together Japanese mayo, rice vinegar, and sriracha. Stir until well combined.
  • Take the salmon out of the oven (note that the salmon will be a little under-cooked), and spread the mayo mixture on top of the salmon.
  • Set the oven to broil, and place the salmon on the middle rack for an additional 2 minutes


To check for doneness, insert a knife through the center of the thickest piece. It should be an opaque pink color in the middle and the meat should be flaky.
