Baked Salmon Fillets in a Creamy Garlic Sauce

An easy to follow recipe using a garlic mayonnaise sauce that will delight your taste buds.

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare fish in a way that my family will enjoy it. Because we are all huge fans of garlic I wanted to make a sauce that would compliment the salmon and satisfy everyone's pallet.

To serve along side the salmon I made two salads; potato and a spring mix.
