Conti's and a Baked Salmon Recipe

Salmon is my favorite food. I've always liked it because it tastes exquisite and is easy to cook as well. An easy recipe is to marinate it in Kikkoman soy sauce and pan-fry in butter. Presto, Ihave an instant meal.

Of course,  if you want dine out, the baked salmon of Conti's coffeeshop is quite popular. A bit of a luxury at P295.... it's a slice of the fish with vegetable sidings and a cup of their tasty paella rice. See photo above.

Recently, I decided to splurge and bought a big chunk of frozen salmon at the supermarket. I wanted  to try out a recipe I found online , using mayonnaise and parmesan cheese. Here's the result:

Here's how to make this Parmesan-baked Salmon:

1. Perheat oven to 400F.

2. Mix 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2 tbsps. parmesan cheese and 1/8 tsp. ground pepper. Set aside.

3. Take out your salmon fillet and pour the right amount of lemon juice on it. Spread the cheese-mayonnaise mixture on top. Then sprinkle with crushed Ritz crackers, just enough to cover the surface of the fish.

4.Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until fish is done.
