This is a recipe I adapted from TOH. This is a beautiful presentation and goes together in around 1/2 an hour. Definitely pretty enough for company. It has a delicate flavor. I have posted the original amounts below, I adapted it for our healthier life-style. We have a friend in Alaska who sends us fresh salmon.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, parmesan, thyme and salt, set aside.
  2. Place salmon skin side down on foil-lined baking dish.
  3. Mix butter and lemon juice in bowl.
  4. Brush salmon with butter-lemon juice mixture, using about 3/4 of the mixture.
  5. Top with crumb mixture, patting it on by hand.
  6. Drizzle remaining butter mixture over top.
  7. Bake at 350 until flakey, about 25 minutes, can brown under broiler if desired.
  8. Now, the original recipe called for 2-1/2 cups breadcrumbs, 6 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, twice as much parsley, 1 tablespoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 6 tablespoons of butter. We thought this tasted wonderful as is, you be the judge.

This is a simple and tasty recipe. If you normally are wary about working with fish, this is a great recipe with which to get experience. The balance of the richness of the fish and the tang of the lemon makes a flavorful ensemble. Try serving this recipe with some orange peel rice, if you want to carry the citrus idea a bit further. Great recipe, Snicklefritzie!
