Scampi-Style Salmon

Delicious oven roasted salmon under a blanket 
of a garlicky herb crust.
 If you love the flavors in shrimp scampi, 
you'll love this easy salmon version topped with  
 buttered breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, and 
herbs. Plus, it cooks in about 10 minutes!
 Combine your scampi flavored crumb mixture
 by melting the butter in a small bowl in the
 microwave, then adding breadcrumbs, parmesan 
cheese, minced garlic, and remaining ingredients. 
Put this mixture on top of the salmon, pressing 
it on to adhere. Give it a spray of lemon juice.
 I have a Misto and it's so easy to spray lemon
 juice on almost everything. 
Roast @400º for 10-12 minutes, depending
 on how thick the salmon is. Don't overcook. 
That's it!
You can also roast your vegetables along
with the salmon for a complete oven dinner.
 Toss the vegetables in olive oil, season, 
and put everything on a large baking sheet.
 Put the potatoes in about 10 minutes early.
Don't overcook the salmon to keep it
moist and tender. 



Scampi-Style Salmon
1 salmon filet, about 1-½ -2 lbs.
¼ C breadcrumbs
¼ C grated parmesan cheese
1 T minced fresh herbs (I used thyme and chives)
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ t salt
¼ t pepper
2 T  butter, melted
Combine all the ingredients, except salmon.
Place the salmon on a baking sheet lined with
foil. Put the breadcrumb mixture on top of
the salmon, pressing it on. Bake at 400º
for 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden.
To keep the salmon moist don't overcook it.

If you are roasting potatoes along with the 
salmon, just put them in the oven about 10 
minutes ahead of time while you are prepping 
the salmon;  You can also roast your green 
vegetable when you put the salmon in the
oven. Coat the veggies with olive oil
  and season with salt and pepper. 

There you go! 
A complete oven dinner that's delicious.
And it only took you 20 minutes to make.

Enjoy!
