Easy Parmesan Baked Salmon

by sunshine on January 17, 2012

Growing up I was not a huge fan of fish (to say it kindly).  I don’t know if it’s because we had it a lot or where exactly the dislike for it came from but I would not touch any kind of fish until a few years ago.  It’s growing on me.  I still only like fish that doesn’t taste too “fishy.”  A few months ago I found frozen salmon filets in the frozen section at the store and thought I would try baking it.  I just put some salt, pepper, lemon pepper and lemon juice on it and both my husband and I liked.  I’ve done that a few times but wanted to try something new.  I came across this recipe and I like this way quite a bit better.  The bread crumbs and parmesan cheese add a great texture to the salmon.  It’s quite nice to have something different other than chicken and beef all the time!

Mmmmmm…..this sounds awesome! I started keeping gluten-free bread crumbs in the freezer, so I can make this kind of thing again! Funny how mayonnaise makes such a good slather. (mmmm, mayo…I can just eat the stuff with a spoon. I know, gross, but….)

Tilapia is my favorite fish to work with. Easy to find, doesn't break apart easily, and not "fishy" at all.
