Tasty Tuesday - Italian Garlic Baked Salmon

Today's tasty dish is Italian Garlic Baked Salmon. I am trying to eat healthier by making better choices. One thing I have been trying to is cook fish once or twice a week. Here's a deliciously easy recipe for salmon. It's a great recipe to try if you don't cook fish much - an easy introduction to cooking fish.


And I just have to share how much I love the Italian Garlic Bread Seasoning. I keep some mixed up with butter in fridge so I can add a quick garlic bread side to any meal. But it's awesome to use anytime you want to add a delicious garlic Italian flavor to any dish.

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients
4 Tbsp. (½ stick) melted butter
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
4 (6-7 oz.) salmon fillets

Directions
Combine Italian Garlic Bread Seasoning and melted butter; stir to blend. In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, 3 tablespoons of the melted butter mixture and lemon peel; mix well. Place salmon skin side down in a greased baking dish. Brush with remaining butter mixture; cover with crumb mixture. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Makes 4 servings.

Tips and Hints
  • For individual servings, slice raw salmon into 4-6 ounce pieces. It's easy to do with a sharp knife.
  • This recipe is unbelievably easy and so good! So it's a great place to start if you don't have a lot of fish cooking confidence.
  • The recipe calls for 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs. But if you have some slightly stale bread (or hot dog or hamburger buns) you can toss them into a processor and you’re your own.
  • At serving time, squeeze, squeeze fresh lemon juice over each piece of salmon. This makes all the difference in the world, because it takes away any trace of "fishiness."
Enjoy!
