This recipe delivers an entree as good as one you might eat in or at a restaurant. Even better, it is absolutely simple and foolproof. It works great with trout as well. You'll feel like a chef when you make this.
- 1 salmon fillet
- 2 large ripe tomatoes
- ½ Red onion
- Finely grated fresh parmesan cheese
- Aluminum foil
This recipe is super high in protein and Omega-3 fatty acids (good for the heart).
Make sure the salmon fillet is cool but not directly from the refrigerator. Place a piece of aluminum foil on your counter. Lightly rinse the salmon fillet and pat dry. Lay the salmon fillet in the middle of the foil.
Dust the fillet with ground pepper and garlic (or fresh) and just a little sea salt. Slice the tomato into medium-thin slices. Cover the salmon with the tomato slices. Thinly slice (shave) the red onion. Cover the salmon and tomatoes with the thinly sliced red onion.
Preheat the oven to 400. Place the rack in the middle. Cook for 12-15 minutes. Take the salmon out of the oven and liberally sprinkle freshly grated parmesan cheese over the fish. If you are unsure if it is done, gently flake open the center.
Set your oven broiler to low. Broil the salmon on your top oven rack for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is brown and the edges are crispy. Enjoy!!!
