Baked Salmon with parmesan and parsley crust

Baked Salmon with parmesan and parsley crust

This is my first attempt at cooking fish in our new kitchen. Further it is Fen's birthday, so I thought I will prepare something simple and nice for her. Baking/Roasting is probably the simplest way to cook and impress your other half.

2 x 200g Salmon Filet Skinned
Ground Black Pepper
Garlic Salt
50g Cream Cheese
10g Breadcrumbs
10g Coarsely Grated Parmesan
2 tbsp of Parsley

1. Pre heat oven to 200C
2. Marinate Salmon with garlic salt
3. Mash Cream Cheese with Garlic Salt and Black Pepper. Spread over Salmon.
4. Mix Breadcrumbs, Parmesan and Parsley; Spread over cream cheese layer.
5. Bake for approx 15min

After Thoughts
Fen really like it since she loves cheese. However I found it a little saltly due to the cheese. Those who are not a big fan of cheese can reduce the amount of parmesan and perhaps skip the garlic salt altogether. For beginners remember to bake with skin up and grease your aluminium foil.

During this festive period, why not impress your other half with some home cooking. This dish took me less than an hour.
