Herb-Rubbed Salmon W/ Bell Pepper & Onion

Herb-rubbed salmon with bell pepper & onion. As made/created by Matt.

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 green bell pepper - chopped
1/4 onion - chopped

lemon pepper with herbs
ground ginger
garlic salt
pre-mixed seafood melody of herbs

Directions: Let salmon sit on counter for 20 mins to remove chill & reducing cooking time (Matt says: 'some website said to do that'). Heat oven to 475 degrees.  Rub salmon with herbs to taste (basically, it's guestimation work here). Cover with chopped green onions. Place butter & mayonnaise in oven safe dish. Put dish in oven for 5 minutes. Take out dish, place chopped onion and bell pepper on top of melted mayo and butter. Place salmon (herb side down) on top of everything. Bake salmon for 5 minutes. Take out, then peel skin off. If skin does not easily peel off, put back in oven for 2 additional minutes. Then salt and pepper back side of salmon, flip it over and bake for 5 more minutes. Take out and enjoy melt-in-your-mouth salmon! 

Add lemon wedges for additional flavoring to the salmon and a side salad. Serve with Grenache Rose wine, which goes great with fish.

Pictorial process:


  1. Woa....committment!! Scaling fish isn't something I have much experience with.

    1. well it wasn't scaling so much as just peeling off the back skin part. if you cook it for a few mins, it comes off pretty easily :)

  2. Oh wow, that looks utterly delicious! I'm a big fan of salmon but it's probably been a few years since I've made it myself. Bookmarking this and will definitely give it a go in another week or two :) xo

    1. thank you! and I promise, it will be delish :)

  3. This looks yummy! I am a pescatarian (veg but I eat swimmy fish), but I am not very good at cooking it on my own. I must learn sometime though! Also, congratulations on your camera! So excited to see you got the D5100, that's what I use and I really like it so far!

    1. I have yet to actually cook fish myself (Matt always cooks the meat/fish), but it really does look pretty easy. And I love my camera thus far too!
