I love finding new ways to eat salmon. I mean, it’s hard to beat my favorite salmon recipe, which is grilling it with dill, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of lemon juice. However, this method might be a tie for favorite.
It reminds me of being at the beach, and we all know that anything beach-related is good, even though we just celebrated the first day of fall.
The butter in this recipe keeps the fish moist, and the garlic and parmesan add a rich flavor. As always, you do NOT want to overcook the fish, so stay on the lower side of the cooking times. You can always put it back in the oven if you need to.
Date night will be a breeze with this simple recipe. Some roasted asparagus and a salad would be a great accompaniment.
Baked Parmesan-Garlic Salmon
1 1/2 lbs salmon
3 Tbs butter
1 Tbs lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 375° F. While the oven is heating, cut a piece of aluminum foil long enough to wrap around the salmon and form a packet.
Melt the butter. Add lemon juice, garlic, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Place the salmon skin-side down on the foil, and brush liberally with butter mixture. Top with fresh parsley. Fold the foil around salmon, sealing well.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Vent the top of the foil, and broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the oven. Plate the salmon, and sprinkle with additional fresh parsley or parmesan, if desired. Serve immediately.
