Take a Trip To Your Pantry and Refrigerator for Salmon Parmesan
I am guessing, if this is the first time you have attempted salmon, you won’t have that in your refrigerator.
You will want 1/3 of a pound per person.
Choose, boneless, skinless, cleaned fillets.
For those not using the seafood that day or the next, FREEZE it, in the proper wrapping.
Just ask the seafood counter attendant to freezer wrap this item for you. Simple. Done.
Gather some tomato sauce (either make it or buy it jarred, whatever your preference is).
Of course, you can use my homemade tomato sauce if you are really wanting to cook everything from scratch.
Personally, I subbed in store-bought sauce, as I was in a hurry.
You will also need bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, some olive oil, and foil.
TIP from This Self-Taught Home Chef
Since I was a food certified manager, I make certain that I have a cleaning solution ready for my hands after coming into contact with the uncooked seafood.
Think of raw seafood as though it is the flu, contagious to anything it comes into contact with.
Avoid food-borne illness and salmonella (not actually named for this seafood, lol).
Clean anything and everything seafood comes into contact with instead of touching and spreading.
Tip 2 for any Salmon Seafood Cooking – What’s That White Stuff?
Don’t be afraid of the white stuff that oozes out the top of the salmon.
It is safe to eat, and it is called albumin, basically protein.
While it looks totally disgusting, you can eat it.
Prep For Salmon Parmesan
Preheat Oven to 400° F.
Make certain you have a nonstick baking dish or treat the dish with nonstick spray.
Don’t be stingy with any of the ingredients.
Plan on baking this for anywhere between 13-15 minutes, until internal temperature is 145° F
Once it’s done baking, immediately toss on mozzarella and allow it to melt in from the heat.
Internal Fish Temberpature if temping it should be 145° F when properly prepared.
