Fresh salmon fillets topped with a zesty crumb topping, including parsley and lemon zest. Very easy and quick to put together after a hard day at work. For extra quick preparation, freeze the leftover bread crumb topping in a suitable container. Simply top the salmon with the frozen crumbs and bake. The roast vegetables are great with the salmon, they are light and tasty. Can't get cous cous? Try bulgur wheat instead or cook some rice or pasta.
