In your flying career, there would come a time when you would not eat your meals because you get tired of airplane food. Right? Like on every flight you would have the same tray over and over again. Sometimes the crew would get so creative, they would shred the beef, put butter on the bread along with the beef and heat it in the oven for like fifteen minutes and voila. Toasted buns with almost crispy beef. Other would bring crackers, instant noodles, or some would buy sandwiches in the terminal and heat some in the oven. I on the other hand would bring my own baon, and noticed that the others would bring theirs too! Baon is like having a bento box. Minus the carrots neatly cut into flowers, or rice placed in Hello Kitty molds. We sometimes do it in potluck. So I searched into the webspace yesterday to look for a particular recipe that I would love to try. Getting tired of the usual adobo, pork liempo, lumpia, cheese sticks and the likes, I whipped up something with salmon.



  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together mayonnaise and mustard. Stir in thyme, oregano, and basil. Place salmon fillets on a baking sheet, and spread with the mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with dill weed.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
How easy is that? I made this yesterday and I’m bringing it on a flight this afternoon. This would be great with rice!
