There are a variety of salmon recipes available that will provide you with a tasty, heart healthy delight. Here is one way to get the most out of your baked salmon taste-wise. It will also help extend your food budget. This recipe serves approximately six people.
2 salmon fillets (1 pound each)
2 cups seasoned croutons (if desired)
1 romaine lettuce bunch, torn
2 cups small cherry tomatoes
3 T olive oil
2 T lemon juice, freshly squeezed or bottled
4-1/2 t mayonnaise
couple pinches of sugar
2 garlic cloves, minched
1 T Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare salmon by lightly spritzing with oil and sprinkling with dried basil. Place seasoned salmon onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes. They will be done when a fork can easily separate the flesh. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a large mixing bowl, toss together the lettuce, croutons, and tomatoes.
In another bowl, mix together all dressing ingredients.
Flake salmon in chunks and add to the lettuce mixture. Add cheese. Pour the dressing mixture over the salmon/lettuce. Toss gently to coat.
Hint: If you want a firmer salmon, simply grill the salmon instead of baking it. For the meat lovers, this may be the preferred method of cooking. Or, use smoked salmon.
