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!
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!
