What We’re Eating: Alaska Salmon Bake

Image Source: somemotivationrequired.com

Salmon was on sale. Random recipe I found. You’re probably not surprised by that anymore.

CHANGES
We didn’t have fresh bread crumbs, so I used Progresso bread crumbs. I think fresh would be much more delightful though. We didn’t have fresh parsley, so I subbed for dried. I read somewhere that you need to use a third of fresh. If it calls for 1 cup of fresh something, use 1/3 cup of dried. No pecans either. Gee,  I didn’t really follow this recipe too closely, huh?

SUGGESTIONS
None, other than to get all the ingredients next time.

VERDICT
Me: *continuous eating*
Norm: This is really good. *repeat*
Emily and Melody: Yummy. More. More.

We had some left over, so I made salmon burgers. Yum! (Use a little honey butter on the buns.)
