  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Coat the inside of a 9x12-inch baking dish with vegetable oil.
  2. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper, and place into the baking dish. Arrange the lemon slices and onion rings on the salmon. In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, harissa, and smoked paprika until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Spread the mayonnaise mixture over the fish, lemon, and onion slices, getting the sauce onto the fish. Pour the orange juice and wine around the salmon.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is hot and has begun to turn opaque, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven, set a broiler rack to about 5 inches from the broiler, and turn the broiler on. Broil the fish until nicely browned, about 3 minutes.


  • Cook's Note
  • You can place the onions and lemon slices on the salmon after spreading the sauce, but they can burn under the broiler.

Awesome. The gf and I made it for dinner, served it with steamed cauliflower and roasted sweet potatoes. Light and tasty. Didn't have the lemon slices, so we used orange slices instead--was stil...

Really easy and flavorful. Followed the recipe to a tee. May substitute Moroccan preserved lemons next time tho.

Very tasty dish and easy to fix. Made per recipe except used hot chili sauce since I didn't have Harissa.

I used a salt based Cajun seasoning instead of Harissa and didn't have smoked paprika so used regular. It turned out great, but I know using smoked paprika and harissa will make it that much be...
