Recipe: Cheesy Baked Salmon

I was going through my recipe books, trying to decide on what to prepare for our Noche Buena meal, when I came across the recipe for Cheese Baked Salmon.

I had my first taste of Baked Salmon at Conti’s a few years ago and I developed quite a liking for it.

Wanting to prepare something similar for my family, I scoured the internet for a recipe which I tweaked, considering available ingredients.

It’s quite easy to make but the ingredients are a bit costly so I only make this dish during special occasions like Noche Buena.

Baked Salmon Recipe


  • 2 pieces of salmon fillets, at least half a kilo each
  • 9 cloves of garlic, finely chopped (use 2/3 of this for the marinade and 1/3 for the cheese topping)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 box (250 grams) Emborg Cream Cheese
  • 5 tbsp Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise
  • Marca Pina Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 pack of frozen peas, corn and carrots
  • 2 tbsp butter


  • To marinate the salmon, season it with salt, pepper and garlic then sprinkle it with lemon juice. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
  • Using a hand-held mixer, whip the cream cheese until softened and fluffy then add the mayonnaise, garlic and parmesan cheese to taste
  • Pat the marinated salmon dry and place it in an oven pan. Generously spread the cheese topping over the fish and sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
  • Bake at 170 degrees C for 35 to 40 minutes or until the topping turns golden brown.
  • Serve with vegetable sauteed in butter.

  1. Just finished cooking this for Noche Buena later. I used Japanese Mayo instead of regular mayonnaise! My sister said it smells great. Can’t wait to eat it later! Thanks for the recipe and happy holidays!
