4 (5- to 6-oz.) center-cut salmon fillets, about
1½ inches thick
¼ tsp. kosher salt
1 clove garlic, sliced
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Pinch cayenne pepper
1. Position oven rack 5 to 6 inches from heat source and preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat lightly with cooking spray.
2. Arrange fillets on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Grind garlic, tarragon, and parsley in a small food processor or with a mortar and pestle until a loose paste. Add mayonnaise, Dijon, lemon juice, and cayenne; pulse until combined. Spread over fillets.
3. Broil until fillets are well-browned, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 450°F. Continue baking until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 7 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest parts registers 130°F.

“I added panko crumbs and freshly grated Parmesan, which made it a little crispier. The flavors were wonderful, and the leftovers were even better.” – STACY SCHELLBACH HAAPALA
