So many reality TV foodie shows serve the most delicious-looking herb-crusted fish. So often I have wondered, what would it taste like? Would I like it? How hard is it to make?
Turns out it is crazy-easy and simple. I got to use one of my herb and spice mixes in a new way and make this herb-crusted salmon.
Use whatever your favourite herb and spice for fish mix is for this recipe.
I used Winslow Taylor’s Brawta Caribbean Fusion Cuisine‘s Everything Nice Seasoning to make this Caribbean Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. This time I used his Greens and Garlic Seasoning which smelled and tasted heavenly!
In a small bowl I put in 2 tbsp of the Greens and Garlic Seasoning and mixed in 1 tbsp of olive oil.
With my fingers I packed the herb and spice mix tightly on top of the salmon fillet. I let it sit for 15 minutes to ease into the fish a little and then I put it into a 375F preheated oven for 30 minutes.
This piece of fish was large enough to share with Reg.
It was a little over-cooked so if your salmon fillet is a little smaller than mine, bake for less time. Maybe 20 minutes.
Reg may appreciate foods without a sauce or a topper but for me? I had to have one! I used an old family formula to make this one: 2/3 cup sour cream and 1/3 cup mayonnaise and added about 1 tbsp of the Greens and Garlic Seasoning mix.
You can use whatever mix you used for the fish and maybe add some fresh lemon juice. I am telling you!!! This takes the salmon to an entirely higher foodie level.
Even without my “salmon topper” the herb-crusted salmon was delicious! I adore the flavours of this seasoning mix and Reg fell in love with the salmon as-is. And you know what? He usually does not enjoy salmon but could not get enough!
What I love about this technique is it makes fish so easy to make. It brings restaurant quality food to your dinner table with zero fuss. Healthy, super-flavourful and simple… I wish all dinners were this easy to make. This is going into my tiny folder for “regular” dinners. I think I now have five recipes in there!
Five out of five wooden spoons for both the technique/recipe and the product!
