Asiago Baked Salmon.
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
- 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.

This looks incredible. I’m definitely trying it soon…thanks for the recipe!
I’m not a huuuge fan of salmon but it does look delicious with that crust. :)
My hubby just asked me to make him salmon. This sounds delicious!
I really need to start using greek yogurt for things like this! This looks delish and a good switch up to boring salmon.
That looks soooo good. I love asiago cheese, it makes anything better.
Thanks for the dinner idea! It looks fantastic! I have a small slab of salmon thawing right now…
I hear you–cheese rocks my world, too! Especially asiago…well, who am I kidding. I love them all.
Yum! I’m always looking for ways to change up our salmon!!!
Mmm, that salmon looks delicious and I always have a soft spot for any sort of cheese…so this is right up my alley!
Always on the look-out for new salmon recipes – can’t wait to give this one a try!
LOVE salmon!! this one looks fantastic girl :)
This looks great too! I just got done finishing my breakfast and am hungry after seeing your carrot cake cookies and now this! Wow haha!
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 :)
I love salmon. I mean, LOVE it! This looks fabulous. I never thought about pairing salmon with cheese sauce. That’s a great idea. :D
i had salmon last night, but it definitely doesn’t come close to this! good thing i bought a 50-lb bag of frozen salmon filets and need recipes to try with ’em :)
Salmon with cheese sauce = WINNER!
Major drool. I’ve tried parmesan on my salmon, but never asiago. I think you have something, here
Yum! I bet this would be super tasty with feta, too.
hahah. My husband has some sweet t’s as well. The topping on this sounds and looks amazing…can I just eat the topping?? Hope you have a good one
we had salmon last night. and i pack prime cut steaks into the fiance’s lunch. so we’ll say food like this is normal.
….and now i’m going to pretend being 24 and going to sears TWICE in a weekend was normal too. it is, right?
Yumm! We love salmon here and that cheesy topping looks delicious! Think swapping the parsley for some dill would be good? I’m not a big fan of parsley.
That salmon could definitely class up any joint!
Yum. I agree that looks delicious.
The salmon looks great. I love salmon to begin with, but topped with asiago sounds perfect.
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.
OH gosh … my husband forced me to watch some cage fighting this weekend. Barf.
Yummy! I haven’t had salmon in ages. This is way to classy for our house though ;)
Your husband has a George Strait T-shirt?! That officially makes him awesome :)
Oooooh that is the LEAST of what he has. I have a feeling you’d get along well. :)
I adore salmon, but never have had the courage to prepare it myself. This recipe may just change that though! Thanks for sharing. :)
Thank you for giving me a new way to make salmon!
I’m so bored with my salmon recipe. Can’t wait to try this one!
I love salmon!! I’ve never had it any other way than just baked with seasonings.. looks like I need to step out of my comfort zone! LOL
Okay, clearly your husband is from the south. Right???
I think he likes to pretend he is.
ha ha! Well, he’s doing a good job of it! =)
I LOVE salmon but for some reason have never thought to pair it with cheese. (What was I thinking?!) So glad you brought this to my attention. :)
Sounds wonderful… I love Asiago and put it into mash potatos that I can serve underneath this… so yummy
This recipe has just been added to my recipe wish list. Thanks for sharing!
I’m having salmon tonight, and could not think of a recipe for it. Thank you for the idea. Can’t wait to try it-it looks fantastic. And I have to say-I’ve never had cheese on my salmon so this looks interesting.
That looks incredible! Salmon is definitely my favorite seafood dish. The asiago sauce on top looks so good!!
Salmon is my favorite food. Those pictures got my mouth watering and I cannot wait to attempt to recreate this one!!
OOOO I will be trying that! I love salmon and i’m always looking for new ways to make it!
Jessica…it’s official. You MUST cook for me. I insist. Your sweet baked goods rock, of course, but your savory items are total killers! ah, to be Mr. Sweet….How lucky that man is!
YUMMM! i love salmon!! ive never baked mine tho!
GORGEOUS! That sauce looks much more decadent than the ingredients would make it seem. Wait…I don’t know if I worded that right, but I think you know what I mean :P
done and done….im making this :)
Salmon with cheese!!!! Genius!!
Salmon is so damn pretty! Looks awesome!
I am very picky about my salmon, but this sounds fab!
Will Mr. How Sweet wear one of his George Strait t-shirts to cheer us on at the marathon? Or how about the boots? I’m gonna need some country lovin’ when I get near the finish line!
You just reminded me that I haven’t had salmon in ages. Now can you just remind me to pick some up this weekend? ;)
I don’t usually care too much for salmon but I may even eat it if it’s covered with a sauce like that.
Ooo! This is a good one. you’re awesome, woman.
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 :)
