I really like salmon ~ whether it’s straight out of the can or fresh and grilled or baked. But, I’ve never combined it with mushrooms until now and it definitely won’t be the last time.
The origin of the recipe is a mystery to me; one of those in my “must try” file. Whatever, it’s delicious! The blend of ingredients compliments the salmon excellently. It’s a tasty salmon dish that goes great with a helping of rice and broccoli, for a good side dish!
Baked Salmon with Mushrooms and Garlic
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 pound salmon filets
Salt and seasoned pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs
¼ cup onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons finely minced parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Lemon wedges for garnish, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place mushrooms in baking dish that is sprayed with a cooking spray.
Salt and pepper salmon filets and layer over mushrooms.
Combine breadcrumbs, onion, garlic and parsley.
Sprinkle over filets.
Stir together olive oil and lemon juice.
Slowly drizzle over filets.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until tender and breadcrumbs are lightly browned.
Remove filets to serving platter and spoon mushrooms over the top.
Serve with lemon wedges.
I hope you try this and like it as much as I do!
