fill the belly some more [26]

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times.  I am not a cook.  But lately, I’ve been having real luck in the kitchen.  I know, how hard can it be to read a recipe, you might ask.  But for me for some reason, I can never get it right.  I misread something.  I don’t hear the oven beep.  Or I do everything right and still it turns out way different than things look in the picture.

Tonight, though it may not look pretty, I succeeded.  I made parmesan crusted salmon.  And it was delish!

Please.  Pay no mind to the crispy potatoes or the canned green beans.  The salmon is the real star of the show!  The best part?  It only took fifteen minutes to make!

First, I mixed together the following:

1/4 cup mayo (I used a gormet garlic mayo–because I used that, I skipped the garlic it called for)

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried chives

1/2 tsp dried parsley

black pepper to taste

(boy, did this mixture smell delish!)

I took the salmon filets and patted them dry.  The recipe didn’t call for this, but I’m a stickler for flavor so I seasoned the filets lightly with salt and pepper.  Then I placed the filets onto a baking sheet and slathered them with the above mixture.  Just for good measure, I sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes (or until fish flakes easily).  Now, I didn’t get the “crust” I was hoping for with that time so I stuck em under the broiler for about 2 minutes.  And viola!

I found this recipe here!
