Today I have a couple of delish food tips for you.
First, when you host a party and end up with a leftover package of just a few fancy crackers, instead of letting them go stale, crush the crackers and incorporate it with different herbs, spices and a bit of honey and top your fish, poultry or beef with the breading before baking to create a flavorful crust. I recommend crackers that are buttery, whole grain and/or contain sesame seeds.
The second tip is on how to bake 3-ounce portions of salmon. Heat a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a nonstick, ovenproof pan. When the pan is extremely hot, place the salmon skin-side down in the oil to sear the skin until crisp – approximately 1-2 minutes. Transfer the pan into a 400-degree oven to bake for 12-15 minutes. By following these steps you’ll have a perfectly baked salmon with deliciously crisp skin.
