With the start of Lent, I don’t eat typical meat on Friday’s but I do still eat fish. With yesterday being the first Friday of Lent, we decided to make salmon and asparagus for dinner.
I haven’t always been good at baking salmon and honestly sometimes I’ve made it and have just thrown it away since it didn’t taste good. A few weeks ago when Keith’s parents were visiting from Montana his mom threw together a salmon recipe that has since become my favorite go-to recipe. It isn’t only super tasty, but it is so easy and quick to make too. No marinating here.
Easy Caesar Baked Salmon
*This recipe is a more play it by ear recipe. I don’t have exact measurements and the below are just estimations of how much of each ingredient I use.
- 1tbsp olive oil
- Salmon, enough to serve 4, skin removed preferred
- 2tbsp Brianna’s Caesar dressing
- 1tsp garlic powder
- 1tsp vegetable seasoning
- 1tsp cumin
- 1tsp black pepper
- 1/4c breadcrumbs (you may not even need this much)
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Wash salmon and place on a foiled lined baking tray greased with olive oil.
3. lightly coat the salmon with the Caesar dressing and season with garlic powder, vegetable seasoning, cumin and black pepper. Add a dusting of breadcrumbs over the top.
4. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on the cut and thickness of your fish. Broil on high for 3 minutes before removing the salmon from the oven.
*The baking time will also depend on how dry you like your salmon as well.
Serve with a side of asparagus and brown rice and you have yourself a complete balanced meal!
Or just have asparagus like we had last night! Delish!
