To prepare baked salmon with mayonnaise according to Saveur.com, grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with 1 teaspoon of canola oil. Rub 8 2-by-3-inch boneless salmon fillets with 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and arrange them skin-side up in the baking dish. Rub the skin of the salmon with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce before covering the dish with plastic wrap and placing it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Remove the dish from the refrigerator, and set it aside for 15 minutes to let it reach room temperature. Spread 1/4 cup of mayonnaise evenly over the salmon, and place it in a 425 F oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the skin has turned golden-brown, rotating the dish once to ensure even heat distribution. After removing the salmon from the oven, set it aside for about five minutes, and allow it to rest so the flavors have time to settle. The end result is a tender, juicy salmon entrée seasoned with soy sauce under a golden-brown crust.
