As I explained yesterday, I'm not really a big seafood eater. I'm trying to indulge in more seafood in particular the "good variety". Salmon is a good choice as it provides a number of essential nutrients and oils. I also enjoy its meaty texture and find it quite filling. I wanted to pair the salmon with the fresh flavours of spring so I used a number of fresh herbs and combined them with some panko breadcrumbs and used the mixture as a crust. I basically used some flat leaf parsley, some basil, the breadcrumbs, the grated zest of one lemon and a little oil. Whizz it in the food processor and apply it on top of your salmon fillet. Pop it in a preheated 180 deg C oven and let it bake for 15 mins. Very easy and satisfying indeed.
I served the baked salmon with some of the crushed broad bean and pea salad I posted about yesterday. Just a note about that post. I know that broad beans are fava but I somehow forgot to include that when I wrote it up! Oops! I've actually been a little hectic lately. I've just returned from Oktoberfest (pics soon!) and had a few personal and professional woes to work out in the last couple of days. Mistakes happen. Also I was trying to throw a little sarcasm at myself at the end of the post and I see it didn't really come across that way. Upon re reading it, it just sounds stupid! Ok, I'm rambling now. See ya! Hope you all enjoy your weekend.
