It’s been a while since I made salmon. I love the taste of it, provided that it is cooked right. There are so many salmon recipes on the net to choose from. I usually stick with a few that are not bogged down with lots of ingredients.
This recipe calls for just a few ingrediants. I like my list short and sweet. Start with a nice piece of salmon; how large of a piece depends on you. The size I’m using is a pound and a half, with the skin taken off the bottom.
Now, the first thing I do is rinse the salmon off with cold cold water. Why? I never really knew why I did it. It just seemed like the right thing to do. When you are in doubt about something, google it. 🙂 Rinse!
I then take cayenne pepper; just as much as you need for the heat you want, and sprinkle a little over the top. Along with the pepper, use a little Mrs. Dash and Old Bay seasoning, to taste.
Take a fork and poke holes all over the top of the salmon after that. It seems to allow that pepper and other spices to sink into the meat of the fish while cooking.
What’s a dish without butter? A dish without butter is like a day without sunshine. Throw a few globs of butter on top of that fish. How much is a glob you ask? How healthy do you want this dish? lol
Next slice a red pepper into slivers and space them out over the salmon as shown in the pic.
Oh my, and now for some cheese!!! What kinda cheese you ask? Some grated parmesan is then sprinkled over the top of the pepper slivers. If I’m not mistaken, I found this recipe while looking for a parmesan cheese recipe.
Finally, sprinkle a little cayenne pepper over the cheese and throw that bad boy in the oven! When is it done? Well, depends on how big a piece you have. Here’s some guidance.
The carrots are from this recipe. Enjoy!
Hope you find this meal to your liking. Many more to come. 🙂
