My sister-in-law Tova is famous for bringing her salmon recipe to our big shalosh seudos get-togethers. It has become a family classic, and the platter is cleaned down to the bottom every single time. This recipe is easy to prepare, serves well at room temperature, and presents beautifully!



  • pepper


  • 1 cup Gefen Mayonnaise, (or use sugar-free mayonnaise)

  • 1/2 – 3/4 a Vidalia onion (depending on size), chopped

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons Haddar Dijon Mustard

  • 2 tablespoons honey

For Presentation (and Flavor)

  • 1 red onion, finely diced

  • 2–3 Persian cucumbers, peel on, finely diced

  • 6 radishes, finely diced (optional)


Prepare the Salmon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with Gefen Parchment Paper.


Rinse the side of salmon and place it on the baking sheet. Drizzle it with lemon juice, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Bake for 30 minutes. Remove. Let cool.

Prepare the Dressing


In the bowl of a food processor using the S blade (or using an immersion blender), combine mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice, mustard, honey, dill cubes, salt, and pepper, and blend until smooth.



Spread the dressing on a platter. (You can save a dollop of dressing to decorate the center of the fish.)


Remove skin (it comes off easily) from the side of salmon. Place salmon on top of the dressing on the platter.


Decorate the sides of the salmon with diced vegetables. They also add flavor when eaten with the fish.

Moist & Delicious The salmon was moist and the presentation stunning! I made it for my mother’s Purim Seuda and it was a hit. I just tried it today with individual slices of salmon and it came out equally delicious. As a bonus, the kids loved the side salad as well( I left out the purple onion).
