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!

ENJOY!

  1. This was very, very good! A nice change to my normal salmon recipe. I was a little apprehensive because we generally don’t like creamy sauces. So I toned it down, but really just a touch. Glad I did not omit it! The sauce was not heavy at all, but the cream gave it just enough body. I think the recipe would be great for a more bland fish like cod as well.

  2. 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!

  3. 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 😉

    Such a flavorful way to prepare salmon!

    I’m a nail polish freak. I’m not going to say it never chips, but Deborah Lippmann’s hard rock top coat is life changing.
