I love the combination of tarragon and Italian parsley, but I've used herbs like basil and thyme, which worked wonderfully as well. As far as the fish goes, a center-cut salmon filet is a perfect thickness for this, but other similarly shaped seafood will work.

  • Preheat oven's broiler on high and set the oven rack about 8 inches from the heat source.

  • Process garlic, tarragon, and parsley in a blender or mortar and pestle to form a loose paste.

  • Mix mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper into garlic paste until combined.

  • Place salmon fillets skin side down on the baking sheet. Spoon herb spread over the top and sides of each fillet.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler until fillets are well-browned, about 5 minutes. Turn the broiler off and turn the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake until the internal temperature of the salmon is 130 degrees F (55 degrees C) and salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 3 to 4 minutes.
