Today I’m sharing a tasty and healthy salmon dish. As mentioned in a previous post, Gremolata is an easy and healthy way to add tons of flavor to any dish. Gremolata is simply a combination of garlic and fresh herbs with lemon. I’ve substituted lime for the lemon in today’s recipe and fresh parsley, oregano and thyme are the herbs of choice. A squeeze of lime juice is the final ingredient to finish off this lovely salmon meal.
Salmon with Herb Gremolata
4 large salmon fillets
2 limes, zest & juice
extra virgin olive oil
salt & fresh ground pepper
3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup panko crumbs
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped Brazil nuts (chopped fine)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Season salmon with the zest of one lime, a drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper. Allow to marinate while making the gremolata. Gather a handful of parsley, oregano and thyme along with 2 cloves of garlic and the remaining lime zest.
Using a very sharp knife, finely chop the parsley, oregano, thyme, garlic & zest.
Place the panko crumbs, breadcrumbs and Brazil nuts in a shallow dish. Add the gremolata mixture and stir until combined.
Press the gremolata mixture on both sides of the salmon fillets. Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray and bake 15 minutes. (Reserve any remaining gremolata for Gremolata Topped Potatoes which I’ll be sharing on Wednesday).
Remove from oven and squeeze with lime juice. Serve immediately. This is another great addition to the Meatless Monday menu…
