Upgrade your basic salmon dinner with this super simple recipe that’s bursting with flavor and crunch! Best part of all? Chances are you have all of the ingredients already, so this is a perfect back-up dinner when you’re looking for something easy.
Just last week, I was hanging out at my friends’ house and she was trying to figure out a new way to prepare salmon that she had on hand. She asked if I had any favorite recipes and I told her about this three-ingredient salmon dish made with egg, Parmesan and breadcrumbs. Kind of random ingredients with salmon, right? Well, she tried it and called me the next day saying how much she loved it. It’s so simple, I wanted to share it with all of you!
Salmon is one of my favorite main dishes to make for dinner. Not only is it super flavorful and healthy but you really don’t have to do much to make it delicious. My go-to is always lemon, olive oil and seasonings but occasionally if I want to “dress it up”, I make this dish and damn, is it good! The outside is crunchy from the breadcrumbs and the inside is super tender and delicious. Win, win!
Did I mention it takes under 15 minutes to make? Just one of the many reasons I love to cook fish! I usually pair it with asparagus but you can use whatever veggies you like!
- 3 salmon fillets
- 1/3 cup gluten free bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 tablespoons parsley
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Bunch of asparagus
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Pull out two bowls. In one, whisk the egg. In the other, combine, breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley.
Coat each piece of salmon in egg mixture and then the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure to cover each side of the fish fillet.
Trim bottoms of asparagus and coat with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper. Add to oven for 12 minutes.
After asparagus has cooked for 5 minutes, heat sauté pan on medium heat with 2 tablespoons of olive. Once hot, add salmon fillets. After 3 minutes, flip over for another 2 minutes. Serve with parsley and enjoy!
