More delish fish!

It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been busy working two jobs and haven't had a chance to do much cooking, much to my, and Chanin's, disappointment.

But I hope to change that starting today.

I got this recipe from Aldi's website. They have a few good looking recipes there and I thought I'd give one a go. It turned out pretty well, but I think their cooking time for the beans is a bit too long, ours turned out overdone a bit.

Mustard Crusted Salmon with Green Beans


1 cup Seasoned Croutons
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
16 ounces Extra Fine Green Beans
Salt, to taste
Ground Black Pepper, to taste
16 ounces Salmon, thawed
3 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 lemon, sliced into wedges


Preheat oven to 400F.

Place croutons in a food processor and pulse to form large, coarse crumbs. 

Add parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and 1 tablespoon olive oil, and pulse gently to combine. Mixture should be coarse and crunchy.

Place salmon fillets on a greased baking sheet and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread Dijon mustard evenly covering each piece of salmon. Top mustard with breadcrumb mixture. Roast salmon fillets for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and the topping is crunchy and golden brown. 

Place frozen green beans on a baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Roast in the oven until hot and beginning to caramelize, about 10 minutes. (The recipe called for 20 minutes, I cut it down to 15 and they were still a bit over cooked, that's why I'm suggesting 10 minutes.)

Serve the salmon with the green beans and lemon wedges.

We had this with a side of stuffed pepper casserole that Chanin had made.

This is is another pretty fast meal to get together. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare and put everything together, so it makes an excellent weekday dinner.
