Salmon with Breadcrumbs

Serves 4 hungry boyfriends in 20 minutes

1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1/4 cup parsley
1 dinner roll, broken into pieces
Juice from half a lemon (use the remaining half for lemon vinaigrette)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
4 salmon fillets*
2 tablespoons dijon mustard

1.  Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.  In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade, pulse garlic until finely chopped.  Add parsley, dinner roll, lemon juice, and olive oil.  Pulse until parsley and bread are finely chopped.  Season with salt and pepper.

2.  Place salmon fillets on baking sheet.  Season fillets with salt and pepper.  Evenly spread mustard over each fillet and top with bread mixture.  Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, until bread is golden brown.

3.  Present to your boyfriend.  I like to serve this dish with a spinach and onion salad with a lemon vinaigrette**.

*Salmon can be swapped with any thick fish

**Lemon Vinaigrette
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice (from about half a large lemon)
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1.  Whisk together all ingredients in a measuring cup
