Easy Caesar Baked Salmon Recipe

25 Feb

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  

Serves:  4

*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. 

Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

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.

Enjoy!

*The baking time will also depend on how dry you like your salmon as well.
