Roasted Salmon Recipe
- 3 tablespoons margarine or butter
- 1/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh parsley leaves
- 3 tablespoons drained capers
- 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 whole salmon fillet (about 2 pounds)
Preheat the oven to 450°.
In a 1 quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in bread crumbs, parsley, capers, dried tarragon, salt and pepper.
Line a cookie sheet with foil. Spray the foil with Pam. Place the salmon, skin side down, in the pan and pat the crumb mixture on top.
Roast for 30 minutes or until the salmon turns opaque throughout and the topping is lightly browned. With 2 large spatulas, carefully transfer the salmon to a serving platter.
Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh parsley or tarragon if desired.
