photo by Faux Chef Lael
- Ready In:
- 1 salmon fillet, about 2 pounds, left whole, skin on
- 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup fresh dill, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, chopped (not powdered)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 425º F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper which serves to keep the fish moist and make for easy cleanup.
- Wash the salmon filet and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down, onto lined baking sheet. Cover salmon with another piece of parchment paper.
- Bake salmon for 10 minutes. While it bakes, stir all remaining ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Remove salmon from oven and discard top piece of parchment paper. Top the salmon with herb and cheese mixture. Return to oven uncovered and bake until the internal temp registers 135º F. The Parmesan cheese should be melted and golden brown.
- Remove the fish and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

I'm an artist and I work from home, so I love to have the smell of something delicious cooking in the background while I'm working. Cooking is the way that I show love to my family and friends -- I get that from my Southern grandma, who always made amazing meals for our large extended family. Since I learned to cook from her, I always end up making meals that could feed a small army. Down home, old fashioned, comfort foods that make lots of leftovers are my specialty. I love to eat any kind of ethnic food but I'm just learning to cook from different cultures. My favorite place in the world is New Orleans, so I love to make Cajun and Creole food. I call myself the Faux Chef because I don't have the talent to be a chef but I try really hard. My problem is, I never measure anything (thanks, Grandma!) which makes me TERRIBLE at baking.
