1lbskinless salmon filletwild caught if possible
1/2sleeve butter crackersabout 15
1tspherbs de Provence
1tsp Italian parsley
preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 C)
remove skin and any pin bones from salmon then set aside
in a food processor combine the crackers, herbs de Provence, matcha green tea, and parsley and pulse until mixture is well blended.
heat the honey so you can brush it onto the salmon*
pack the cracker topping onto the salmon, making a nice layer of the topping, sealing in the salmon as much as possible
place salmon in baking dish, and add a little water to the pan so it does not dry out in the oven.
drizzle a little olive oil over the topping and place the salmon in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes.
remove from oven , cut portion in half and serve with your favorite sides.
*be careful not to use too much honey, use just enough to help the cracker mixture stick. You do not want the salmon to be sweet.
