Baked Alaska Salmon Recipe with Cheese


You will love this super easy and quick baked cheesy alaska salmon recipe. This is something that my grandmother used to make and we loved it! You can prepare this in 15-20 min. Alaska Salmon is considered a healthy fish due to its high protein content and Vitamin D. Alaska Salmon fillets are baked in the oven under a melted and golden cheese crust, with a layer of mayonnaise, and sliced onions.

Stunning presentation, comforting flavors – this is a very popular main course in the Russian community. Trust me, your guests will love it and don't share this recipe with them. So, wait no more and try this easy fish recipe at home and enjoy the dish with your loved ones. It forms this amazingly crisp but still creamy crust.

I have collaborated with Alaska Seafood and created 4 quick and fuss-free salmon recipes, that could easily be replicated for a family. I want to bring more awareness to eating healthier and natural fish. You can check out their website here: 


Alaska, the large, sparsely populated state, is one of the world’s largest seafood exporters. Seafood is Alaska’s most valuable renewable resource and is the state’s second-largest industry behind oil/gas, in terms of generated labor income. Commercial fishing and seafood processing are vitally important for rural, coastal communities in Alaska. The industry accounts for roughly a third of all private-sector employment occurring in rural Alaska. Seafood from Alaska is wild, natural and sustainable.

Fish from Alaska swim wild in the icy Pacific Ocean. This freedom to swim and the fish’s natural diet creates superior taste and texture. Wild Alaska seafood is firmer, fitter and a more vibrant fish. Wild Alaska seafood has no artificial coloring, preservatives, pesticides or GMOs. Alaska’s fish live in some of the cleanest waters in the world. Sustainable: Ticking the sustainable box cannot be easier when buying Alaska seafood.


  • Alaska salmon x 2 fillets  (220 gr)
  • Mayo 3-4 tbsp
  • Mustard - 1 tsp
  • 1/2 onion
  • Garlic 1 clove
  • Half lemon juice
  • Pepper, salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 50 gr of Cheese (hard cheese)


Step 1. Place salmon skin side down onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Season with salt and set aside for a minute. 

Step 2. In a bowl, add mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice. Then add minced garlic and chopped onion. I chopped onion into slices and then halved it more time. If you don't like onion rings, you can make them even smaller. Squeeze the onions in your hand a little bit and then add them into the bowl.

Step 3. Season well with salt, pepper and then top up each salmon fillet with a generous amount. Then add shredded cheese on top and place in the preheated oven at 200 C/ 400 F for 15 min. If you want cheese to get golden crispy colour, increase the heat to max for 1-2 min. 

Step 4. Enjoy with salad, rice, pasta or potatoes.
