Labor Day 2012

Today is day 3 of my rare 3 day weekend. Day 1 consisted of a trip to Turner Falls, Day 2 mega-chillaxing, chocolate waffle breakfast, garage sales and dinner with my folks, and Day 3 lunch out, making sun tea, had a friend over for hanging out/cards, and making dinner at home.

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

  • 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.
