Baked Salmon topped with Parmesan & Herbs

Jun 19

I come each night ready to get to work. I mean, I was at work all day, but when I get home, I am ready to organize, hang pictures, and unpack. But at the end of every night, I am rarely able to cross much off the list.

My distractions include–

  • Looking around at how much I have to do, and let discouragement get the best of me
  • I’m tired, and I just don’t want to tonight
  • My husband is tired, and he doesn’t want to šŸ˜‰
  • I start one thing, and then another, and nothing gets accomplished
  • You get the picture!

So cooking a quick but delicious dinner is high on my list if you can imagine. When I saw this Baked Salmon recipe from Add a Pinch, I pinned it. When I got home that night and discovered all the ingredients in my house (thisĀ has rarely happened in the new house), it was fate, Ā And boy was it good! This is now a staple in ours house– hope you like it as much as we do!

  • 2 small salmon filet (we defrosted frozen ones)
  • Parmesan Herb Crust:
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 cup parsley (dried or freeze-dried...or of course fresh!)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: easy


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper- this makes clean up so easy!

Place salmon, skin side down onto baking sheet. Cover salmon with a piece of parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the garlic, parsley, and cheese in a small bowl.

Remove the salmon from oven, and throw way the top parchment paper. Top with the garlic, cheese, and parsley mixture. Ā Place salmon bake in oven. Use a thermomter and cook until the salmon reaches 135 degrees. The cheese should be melted and start to brown.

Let the salmon rest for a few minutes. Serve and enjoy!
