Cheesy Lemon Buttered Salmon
I am always looking for ways to change up Salmon. It is such a good protein for you, ideally I would like to have it a couple times a week, so I try to spice it up to keep my taste buds watering. We had this tonight and it was really good!
Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
2 salmon filets (About 4 ounces each) thawed (if frozen).
1 ounce cream cheese
1 large garlic clove, minced
zest of 1 lemon
Slice a "pocket" on the top of each filet- stop the cut 1/2 inch from each edge. If the fish is thin be sure to cut at an angle. Mix all the stuffing ingredients, spoon into pockets. Sprinkle salt over the fish.
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Mix topping ingredients, sprinkle over stuffed salmon fillets. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, until salmon is flaky. I put it under the broiler for 3 minutes to lightly brown the top.
