Salmon is considered as a 'brain' food and is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, minerals and ofcourse omega 3 ... Now wouldn't you want all that goodness in your tummy! :) I love coming up with different spice blends for cooking salmon, so here is one of them - the flavour and smell of the lemon + parmesan + garlic = amazing!!!
Go on read this super easy recipe that won't cause a whole lot of mess and cleaning up :)
- 2 Salmon fillets
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 3 garlic cloves mashed to a paste
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves

Preheat the oven to 200C
In a baking dish pour the olive oil and the lemon juice.
Rub the mashed garlic on the salmon, and then season with some salt, pepper, thyme and place the salmon fillet skin side down in the baking dish.
