I don’t usually like fish; I’m not the biggest fan of the taste. However, I’ve been trying to incorporate a little more fish into my diet. (Since I rarely eat fish or red meat, we’re probably omega-3 deficient around here.) One of my go-to fish recipes is this parmesan crusted salmon! I’ve always liked this recipe because it takes less than 30 minutes start to finish, has only 3 ingredients, and is sufficiently cheesy for me. (To be honest, I feel a little bad even calling this a recipe because it has about 2 steps and is ridiculously easy.) This is delicious served with some skillet-cooked potatoes and steamed veggies!
Parmesan Crusted Salmon Recipe
Mix mayonnaise and parmesan cheese together, using an approximately 1:1 ratio, adjusting to taste. Spread cheese mixture generously over salmon, and top with a little more parmesan cheese if desired.
Cook at 425 degrees until internal temperature of the salmon reaches 145 degrees, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Aim for about 4-6 minutes per half inch thickness of the filet. We always use our food thermometer to check temperatures – it’s way easier than trying to guess if your meat has cooked to a safe temperature! Top with a little parsley if desired, and enjoy! (Told you it was easy.)
