LEMON HERBED BAKED SALMON
Dishing Up Romance
2 bagels, crumbled
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon thyme, dried
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 pound salmon cut into filets
salt and pepper to taste
PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES
Break the bagels into bite-sized pieces and place in a food processor to crumble using the pulse setting. I've used sun-dried tomato bagels, plain bagels and cheese bagels. Add the minced garlic, thyme, parmesan cheese and zest and pulse until mixed. Pour the melted butter over top and pulse again until completely blended. Set aside.
Prepare your filets by removing any skin, season with salt and pepper and place in a greased baking dish.
Pour the bread crumbs over top of the fish, distributing evenly until fish is completely covered. Bake for approximately 20 minutes and stuffing top is golden. Do not overcook because it will dry out the salmon.
Serve with a side vegetable and a huge glass of pinot noir. Yes, this is one fish you can enjoy with a red glass of wine.
