Parmesan Crusted Salmon

Here’s a new twist on cooking salmon.  Instead of simple grilling or frying, we’ve added some parmesan cheese to the mix for a little sharpened flavor.  The fish was marinated in a lemonade mixture with garlic and Italian seasoning to give it more internal flavor.  The hash brown that are served along as a side also have the extra up-taste of the same parmesan.  There were a few problems getting the cheese to stick to the fish and not the grill so make sure your grill is on the hot side and don’t turn to soon.

Fish:
2 – 3 salmon filets
1 – 12 ounce can pink lemonade
1    teaspoon garlic salt
1   teaspoon Italian Dried Seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
3  tablespoons parmesan cheese

Hash browns:
1/2 package Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash browns (the best)
salt and pepper to taste
3     tablespoons parmesan cheese

In a dish deep enough to hold the salmon filets, add lemonade, garlic salt and Italian Seasoning.  Clean the backside of the salmon and remove any brown Allow to marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator, turning if necessary.  These fish are marinating in a clay baking dishes.   Preheat grill or  oil skillet to cook the fish.

Place the fish on the hot grill or skillet.  Add salt, pepper and parmesan cheese to the side up.  Allow to cook for around 5 minutes on the first side or until the fish no longer is sticking on the grill.  Meanwhile, heat a medium size skillet on medium high and spray with olive oil or Pam.  When warm add 1/2 package of Simply Potatoes Shredded Hashbrowns, salt, pepper and more parmesan cheese.

Carefully turn the fish ensuring that it is not sticking to the grill.  If it appears to be sticking use a sharp edge turner to release the fish from the grill but make sure it has charred in the grill marks before turning.  Watch your potatoes, too and turn occasionally until brown.  Mash the hash browns into the pan with the turner to help them brown more quickly.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.
