Last night, the house was at the height of it's craziness and I think since I couldn't clean, my other domestic instincts kicked into overdrive. I decided it was time to make baked salmon for dinner. I really don't like salmon, but Eric LOVES it, and I can stand it once in a while. I knew I wanted to use Dijon mustard as a flavoring, and I knew I wanted it nice and crispy, so I compiled some ingredients because my computer charger was lost in the crazy that was my living room (normally I'd just Google a recipe because I'm creative like that).
12oz salmon fillet
2 tablespoons of butter (I used 3 and it was too much)
3 tablespoons Italian bread crumbs
shallow pan covered in foil (for easy clean up)
1) Preheat oven to 400
2) Place salmon, skin side down, on the foil. Spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard over the entire fillet.
3) Season the fillet with salt and pepper
4) Sprinkle fillet with bread crumbs
5) Drizzle with melted butter
6) Pop that fishy into the over for about 15 minutes or until it cuts easily with a fork (rule for all fish).
And here's my little table setup. Obviously I served it with a nice white wine, a gorgeous salad with veggies I grew organically myself, and homemade bread. SIKE!! (<- I am single-handedly bringing this word back, people!) Who do you think I am?? I served
little ceramic elephant, some painting supplies, and an oven mit. Yep, it's how we roll.
Give this recipe a try - it couldn't be easier, and the prep is seriously 5 minutes. And even I, who dislike salmon, found it pretty enjoyable. With that, I've got to go paint a ceiling. Have an amazing Friday, friends! The weekend is here!
