Baked Salmon with a Herbed Crust


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.
