At home, Wednesday night dinner is always fish. It’s a hadith from our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) to eat fish on Wednesdays. We like to try different recipes at home and one of my favourite is this baked parmesan-crust salmon. I boiled potatoes and added red onion and parsley as a side dish.


What you will need:
• 2 x 150g salmon fillets, skinned
• salt and freshly ground black pepper
• small clove garlic, crushed
• ½ lemon, squeezed and a pinch of zest
• 25g fresh white breadcrumbs
• 25g coarsely grated parmesan
• 4 branches of fresh flat leaf parsley
(double the ingredients if you are making for 4 people)

What you need to do:
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
2. Pour some olive oil in a pan and lay the salmon fillets flat.
3. Add the breadcrumbs, parmesan and parsley to your food chopper and squeeze the lemon and zest the lemon too (don’t forget to add the seasoning)
4. Mix together using a metal spoon and divide into two and spread on top of each salmon fillet.
5. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
6. Serve immediately, garnished with chopped parsley.

Tips on how to cook salmon:
To tell when the salmon is done, it will have changed from translucent to an opaque pink. Salmon should flake when cooked.


What you will need:
• 500g of potatoes
• salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 1 red onion
• 4 branches of fresh flat leaf parsley
• Lemon

What you need to do:
1. Wash potatoes and cut each one in half.
2. Boil potatoes in a pan for about 10 minutes.
3. Rinse in cold water and place them in a bowl.
4. Chop whole onion into little tiny pieces and chop parsley too.
5. Squeeze half a lemon into mixture.
6. Once ready to eat, heat up potatoes and add mixture and stir.

Enjoy 🙂 Any questions, please do email me.
