Herb Crusted Salmon for Two

Salmon is something that is easy to cook especially baked.  You can play around with flavors, try wrapping in foil, or just bake a simple salt and peppered filet in the oven for 15-20 minutes.


2 salmon filets
3 slices of bread
2 teaspoons of oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley or 5 sprigs of fresh parsley
2 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons of melted butter
1 tablespoon of butter
Large stove to oven skillet

Make the bread crumbs:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a food processor put in the bread and spices.  Pulse until all mixed.  Add in half of the melted butter and pulse.  Keep adding butter until you get a good consistency like wet sand.  
  3. Spread out the bread crumbs on a foil lined aluminum pan and toast in oven for about 3-5 minutes
  4. Take the bread crumbs out of the oven.  Salt and Pepper the filets and lightly brush each salmon filet with mustard.  Don't forget the sides too!  
  5. Heat up a large skillet on medium high heat and add ~ 1 tablespoon of butter.  Place in salmon filet and cook for about 2 minutes flesh side up.
  6. Remove from heat and flip salmon over.  Coat each filet generously with bread crumbs.  
  7. Place skillet in the oven and cook the salmon for about 10 minutes and enjoy!
