Make It

Good morning! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! My office is on summer hours right now, so I’m meeting my mother in law and sister in law for lunch and shopping, which I’m super excited about because I don’t get to spend nearly enough time with them.

I bought a gorgeous cut of salmon this weekend and am planning on making my Parmesan Salmon at some point this week. I figured I’d share the tasty recipe with all of you.

But first – why should YOU should eat salmon?

Well, low in calories and saturated fat, salmon has a very high protein content and a unique type of health-promoting fat — omega-3 essential fatty acids.

These fatty acids, as their name implies, are essential to our health but cannot be made by the body, so they must be obtained from foods.

According to a recent study, eating salmon or tuna just twice a week may help raise omega-3 levels at least as effectively as a daily fish oil supplement. Now wouldn’t you rather enjoy a flavorful meal than choke down a fish capsule each day? Yeah, me too. Let’s get into that recipe, shall we?

You’ll need:

Remove skin from salmon filet. Cut into 3 or 4 pieces, place on baking sheet covered with tin foil or paper. Season with salt and pepper. Coat thoroughly with Parmesan cheese and pat cheese to make it adhere well.

Heat large frying pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, coating the pan. Add filets and brown on both sides ( about three minutes each side.) Do not move the fillets around in the pan before flipping, or the cheese will not adhere.

Once finished, top with more parmesan cheese and sprinkle with chopped scallions.

Do not over-cook or salmon will get dry and hard.

Serves two or three people.
