A Simple Dinner: Salmon Fillet with Italian Blend of Marinara – Basil – Parmesan – Panko Breadcrumbs – Lemon – Clam Juice

If the traditional Mediterranean diet included salmon, this just might be a staple. . .

For 2:

–salmon fillet (one-half pound, size of 2 decks of cards)

–marinara sauce (I used Bertoli’s garlic, basil, and olive oil pasta sauce; 5 tablespoons)

–basil (1 tablespoon; dried)

–Parmesan cheese (one-quarter cup; shredded)

–Panko breadcrumbs (original, just a sprinkle over top)

–lemon juice (3 squirts)

–clam juice (one-eighth cup)

–salt and pepper to taste

–extra virgin olive oil

1 – Place the salmon in a covered baking dish. Season with salt, pepper, lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil. Pour in the clam juice. Spoon marinara sauce on top. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top; then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and basil.

2 – Microwave on high for 3 minutes and 20 seconds.

3 – Serve the salmon hot.
