Baking salmon with Miracle Whip gives the fish a sweet, flavorful taste and helps to keep the fish moist while cooking. Miracle Whip contains the same basic ingredients as mayonnaise with additional flavors and spices for a distinctive taste. Kraft, the company that manufactures Miracle Whip, claims its products contains half the fat of mayonnaise. If you prefer the taste of Miracle Whip over mayonnaise, you may enjoy this low-fat option for baking your salmon.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lay a piece of aluminum foil big enough to wrap the salmon fillet in on the counter.
Position a sharp knife just underneath the skin and slice down the length of the fillet until you reach the opposite end to remove the skin.
Spread an even, thin layer of Miracle Whip on both sides of the fillet with a butter knife.
Place the salmon on top of the aluminum foil.
Sprinkle spices on both sides of the fillet. Choose from such spices as salt, pepper, parsley, dill and garlic or onion salt.
Wrap the aluminum foil around the fish and close it tightly to seal in juices while the salmon cooks.
Place the salmon in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes.
Remove the salmon from the oven when it flakes evenly when pierced with a fork.
