An expensive, healthy and yummy dish suited for the holidays.
Baked Salmon is a fish dish of salmon slab topped with cream cheese and more cheese then baked until crust turns lightly brown.
1 salmon fillet
salt and pepper
juice of half a lemon
Cheese Garlic-Mayo topping:
½ block cream cheese - softened
3 tbsp mayo
1 to 1 1/2 tbsp garlic chopped finely (if you want it more garlicky, just add a bit more)
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup for the cream mixture and 1/4 for the topping)
Salt and pepper to taste
breadcrumbs (optional. I like it w/ breadcrumbs, but the one served at Conti's does not have this)
Garnish - Buttered Vegetables:
2 tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
Rub salmon fillet with salt and pepper, then lemon juice for about 20 minutes
While salmon is marinating, mix thoroughly the cream cheese, mayo, garlic, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. set aside.
Pan fry salmon about 2 to 3 mins on both sides
Preheat toaster/turbo. Assemble the fried fish on baking tray, then top w/ cheese garlic mayo mixture, sprinkle w/ remaining parmesan cheese and bread crumbs, bake in toaster/turbo for about 10 to 15 mins at 175C.
Saute mixed vegetables w/ 2 tbsp butter. Season with salt and pepper.
Put out the baking tray and surround the baked salmon with butter vegetables.
