Hi Hi! How goes it? It’s the middle of the week (Amen!) and we’re still powering through. High-Five to us all!

Can I share with you something personal? Of course I can. You’re just like me and wanna know all about others’ business. Right? I’m not alone, right?!?

Don’t worry, it’s nothing deep… and somewhat shallow.

I was painting my nails the other day and I knew I was truly wasting my time by doing so because no matter what, that nail polish will chip off just as soon as I go to wash our dinner plates. Even that 10$ nail polish (yes, I’m looking at you, ESSIE!) comes off.

Sure enough, when I was done with the dishes, the tips of my nails were back to white.

Now, before you tell me to run the dishwasher, remember I am a food blogger. My dish washer is already full.

So how about that for an opening story to a post about Salmon? 😀

Sometimes a girl just needs to talk about things… it’s all good, right? Cool. This is why I love you!

Let’s now turn our focus to tonight’s din din. There are really great things happening here. Though this might look like a lot of work, buhlieve me, it is not. It’s a weeknight meal, but fancified.

My other half is huge on fish, especially salmon. My go-to prep method for fish is almost always baked-in-foil, but sometimes I like to pretend that I know what I’m doing so I go ahead and fix this Panko-Crusted Salmon with Tuscan Tomato Sauce.

Is it OK if I say perfection? ‘Cause this totally IS.

All we have to do is mix up a simple panko-crumb mixture with parsley and lemon zest. Then, we move over to our skillet, pour in the wine, fry up some onions, toss in tomatoes and a bit of cream, garlic, too (duh), and voila! We have sauce! A few minutes in the oven, this fish will go from boring to knocking your socks off!

Pull up a chair, call everyone to the table and bon appetit!

ENJOY!

    Oh my…I made this last night and it was heavenly! The salmon was delicious on it’s own but that Tuscan tomato sauce really brought it to a whole new level! I have to figure out what else I can use that sauce on! Maybe some creamy polenta, topped with a sunny side up egg and then a little of that Tuscan tomato sauce to top it off! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us!

    This salmon looks and sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try this recipe out!

    Also- about painted nails and dishwashing- DO NOT FRET! You can still have nice painted nails!!! Get yourself a pair of rubber gloves to wear while washing dishes!! I have a cute pink pair and would never even THINK of exposing my hands AND manicure to the elements of dishwashing! No need to have to pick between having nice nails or clean dishes 😉

  3. Janet

    The salmon looks delicious!
    I usually get a nude color on my nails because when it starts peeling it is harder to see than a brighter color.
    Have a good day!

  4. Ha!
    First, that crispy coating. Awesome!
    Second, my dishwasher is ALWAYS full and I am always doing handwashables, too!
    Third, I was thinking about painting my nails, and I just thought. “What is the point? It will chip off within half a day.”

    Food blogger problems, indeed.

  5. Kate,
    Dishes–the bane of my existence. And I have kids who deal with the dishwasher!

    I made a pot of beef stock all day long yesterday, cooled and drained it just before bed. That meant I woke up to a bunch of pots and strainers that were filthy. And what am I making today? Chicken stock! (Tomorrow will be spent pressure canning the defatted stocks so I can restock my pantry).
    I don’t even try with fingernail polish, though one of these days I’ll be hitting the Be Pampered (how nice a name is that?) nail spa for a pedicure while waiting for my girlie to finish her sewing class.
    This salmon looks delicious–I’m months away from fresh tomatoes, but intrigued to try it with some slow roasted tomatoes out of the freezer.
    Thanks!

  6. Haha! Food blogger problems indeed! I think it’s guaranteed that I will never have a decent manicure thanks to those mountains of dishes every day. LOL. But this salmon? I’m drooling here! Love all the panko breading and that gorgeously-creamy tomato sauce!
