We all should know about Friday night fish since the tradition is common throughout most of the world. Before you break out that bag of frozen fish sticks or fillets, though, think about an easy-to-make dish with the most delicious freshwater seafood you can find: salmon. With this simple recipe, you can make your own crusted salmon that tastes just as delicious as if it was served at a fine seafood restaurant.
The key to this recipe, and what makes it truly unique, is that I coat the salmon fillets with mayonnaise before I coat them with the Parmesan and bread crumb mixture. This helps keep the crust from drying out and flaking off and adds a lot more flavor to the dish. Using mayonnaise, you get a creamy and tangy dish that is so easy to prepare you could even whip it up for a quick weeknight meal. Even though it’s so easy to make, it’s also fancy enough for entertaining.
The lemon juice goes perfectly with salmon, and the Sriracha sauce gives the fish a kick that you won’t find in many restaurants outside of New Orleans.
The next time you’re considering a Friday night fish fry, go the baked route instead and enjoy the fine dining of a delicious salmon recipe. You won’t regret it, and neither will any guests you invite over to enjoy a meal with you. So, let’s make some Parmesan Crusted Salmon.
