Zach listens to NPR at work every day and loves Splendid Table and Zorba Paster. There were several dinners last week and this week from good ol' Dr. Zorba. Today, we're making a Cranberry Crusted Salmon from his website.
Cranberry Crusted Salmon (from Dr. Zorba at wpr.org)
- 4 salmon filets
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- salt and pepper
- 3/4 cups breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup chopped green onion
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped thyme
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking dish. Lay the salmon in the dish, skin side down (if it has skin still). Salt and pepper the fish to your liking, then spread the mustard over each fish filet. Place remaining ingredients in a bowl, mix until thoroughly combined. Press resulting crumb mixture onto each fish filet, dividing crumbs evenly. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork.
