This salmon was the classiest thing happenin’ in our home this weekend.

Especially when you have a husband who spent his Sunday lounging in plaid pajama pants and a George Strait t-shirt.

He had a good excuse – recovering from his sickness.

But I can’t fool you guys. To say that such t-shirt’s,  Nascar-inspired sweat shirts, cowboy boots and WWF figurines don’t make a frequent appearance in our house would be a blatant lie.

 

Thank goodness I can live my faux-elegant and classy life entirely through food.

Things like seafood and filet are a common occurence in our home. That is normal for newlywed’s, right?

Good thing we bought the house with the money tree in the back yard.

 

I like my seafood with a little pizazz.

While I do think most fish is delicious alone, there is nothing like adding a little flavor – especially in the form of cheese.

Cheese makes my world go ’round.

 

The topping is a mixture of greek yogurt, asiago cheese, parsley, shallots, and garlic.

It came out light and tasty. The only thing that could have made it better is bacon. Bacon makes everything better.

 

Asiago Baked Salmon

Serves 2-3

1 lb salmon filets

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

1 tablespoon dried parsley

3 tablespoons grated asiago cheese

1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 tablespoon chopped shallots

salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400.

Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. In a bowl, mix yogurt, cheese, shallots, parsley and garlic together. Spread on top of salmon. Bake until fish flakes – about 15 minutes.

 

 

Bobbleheads and Dale Earnhart Jr. jacket’s aside, this salmon made our dinner a bit more chic and sophisticated.

Now, if I could just get rid of the framed pictures of WWF wrestlers, we’d be set.

    I really need to start using greek yogurt for things like this! This looks delish and a good switch up to boring salmon.

    I like to try different way of eating salmon. It seems to be a great topping. What I also like is to top the salmon with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil, chopped. Yummy! I’ll try your recipe eventually :) Thanks :)

    This looks amazing! Ah yes, filets and seafood explain the first year of marriage! I think good food has actually made marriage a little happier with all the excitement the first year can bring.

    Rest assured that although there is not much swag, we rarely spend a weekend or couple days without the influence of cage fighting on our TV or computers. Oh boys.

    Your grocery budget must be insane. Just in general. Not b/c you eat “that” extravagantly but b/c probably do the 8.99 for a tiny bag or nuts, this or that spices, etc. Pre skylar i did the same thing. Plus meat or fish is pricey! There are no other newlyweds who eat like you do :)
