Baked Salmon with Spicy Creamy Sauce

Healthyish Baked Salmon with Spicy Gluten Free Mayo

YIELDS: 2 servings PREP TIME: 5 mins

COOK TIME: 15 minutes TOTAL TIME: 24 mins (with broiling)

Scottish salmon is one of my favorite fish to cook at home. And this recipe can be prepped and cooked in under 24 minutes. Perfect for busy weeknights when you want to get something healthy on the table in a hurry. This dish is packed with flavor and it’s only 5 ingredients.

The gochujang gives this dish a nice mild spice, while the liquid aminos offer a hint of umami. The vegenasie rounds out the sauce with its creamy texture and acid base. Doesn’t get much better!

What makes it Healthyish

For starters, we oven-baked our salmon which is always a healthy way to cook any protein. Additionally, we made sure all of the ingredients were gluten free, making this dish a crowd pleaser for households with gluten intolerances.


  • Two 6 oz Scottish salmon filets
  • ½ cup vegenaise
  • 1 teaspoon gochujang
  • 2 teaspoons liquid aminos
  • Healthy pinch of pepper


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place your salmon on the baking sheet skin side down.

2. Grab a small mixing bowl and combine vegenaise, gochujang, pepper and liquid aminos. I stirred everything together with a spoon.

3. Once well mixed, spoon spicy mayo sauce evenly on the salmon filets. Make sure they are both well covered. (I skipped adding additional salt because the liquid aminos have a slightly salty flavor already.)

4. Bake for 15 minutes and broil for an additional 3-4 minutes until the sauce gets lightly browned on the top. You can expect the salmon to be a medium-well temperature.

Serve with a side of rice and veggies of your choice. You can also substitute the rice for cauliflower rice too.
