This is one of a series of salmon recipes that I have included for illustration. These are all quick and simple recipes and rely on ingredients that you should already have in the house. And you don’t have to use salmon. Any fish with some character will hold up to these recipes.
There have been numerous studies that show a reduction of risk in fatal heart attacks when men eat fish. In a study in the Journal of American Medical Association, researchers reported similar protection for women, showing that eating fish about once a week reduces the risk for fatal heart attack by at least 1/3. Eating fish more often reduces the risk even further, with having fish 2 – 4 times per week cutting the risk by over 40%.
These results were independent of the study’s participants use of other foods that might also prevent heart disease, such as fiber, differences in intake of red meat, fruits and vegetables or lower saturated fat diets.

|2 ounces||fresh sour dough bread|
|1 ounces||Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)|
|1 clove||garlic (minced)|
|1 Tbsp||fresh basil (chiffonade)|
|1 tsp||extra virgin olive oil|
|1/2 Tbsp||balsamic vinegar|
|2||4 ounce salmon filets (no more than 1/2 in. thick)|
|spray olive oil|
Add the fresh sourdough bread to a food processor and process until they are fine crumbs.
Add the parmesan, garlic, basil, olive oil and vinegar and process until the mixture is well combined. This will make a moist breadcrumb mixture.
Preheat the oven to 450°. Place a non-stick skillet in the oven on the lowest possible rack. Remove the middle rack. Leave the pan in the oven for at least ten minutes.
Place the salmon fillets on a cutting board skin side down and pat the breadcrumb mixture onto the top of each fillet.
Remove the skillet from the oven and lightly spray with oil. Transfer the salmon filets (skin side down) to the pan and return to the oven. Cook for 6 minutes for rare.
Switch on the broiler and broil until the crust is golden brown (about 3 - 5 more minutes).
