You can actually make this at home by simply combining cream cheese with herbs. This recipe uses dill but you can use your favorite herb, too.

4 Oven Toaster Cheesy Baked Salmon Recipe 

The small but mighty oven toaster is a popular kitchen appliance. If this is all you have at home and you still want to make this baked salmon, you still can! The wonderful news is that the oven toaster is still powerful enough to cook your baked salmon dish as needed.  


TIP: Line the toaster tray with foil and wrap the entire salmon and cheese topping up, so the salmon can steam cook in the foil package first. Then, open the foil in the last 5 minutes before removing so it can turn golden brown on top.

5 Garlic Baked Fish Recipe

Salmon isn't the most affordable cut of fish but thankfully, there are options on the market that can deliver flakey fish that's not as hard on your budget as salmon can be. The trick here is to look for a large fish that you can afford and ask your fishmonger to fillet it for you. Then prepare it just as you would the salmon, complete with a thickened bechamel sauce flavored with garlic and Parmesan cheese. 

TIP: Use matang baka, lapu-lapu, pla-pla, or even cream dory fillets if you're on a tight budget.
