I will announce the winner of the cookbook by Jodi Ambrose featuring two of my recipes at the end of this post 🙂
I make seafood often. It's normally quite easy to do, and many recipes are interchangeable between different types of fish. Our favorites around here are shrimp, clams, salmon, tilapia, and catfish. The best thing is my 3-year-old will eat most fish, no matter how I cook it, but she doesn't like store-bought fish sticks!
So, one day I was thinking of doing something different with salmon, and came up with this easy and delicious recipe.
Lemon Dill Salmon
4 salmon fillets, 4 ounces each
¾ cup Panko bread crumbs
½ teaspoon dried dill
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl combine panko bread crumbs, dill, salt, parsley, and lemon juice. Lay salmon fillets out on a baking dish ( I used a clear glass one) and press the bread crumb mixture into the fillets with your fingers. Drizzle with the melted butter. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, then turn up the oven to 425 F just long enough to crisp the bread crumbs, about 5-10 minutes longer. Serve with rice and steamed broccoli for a delicious and easy meal!
