Ingredients

  • 1 lb skinless salmon fillet wild caught if possible
  • ½ sleeve butter crackers about 15
  • 1 tsp herbs de Provence
  • 1 tsp matcha green tea
  • 1 tsp Italian parsley
  • 1 tsp honey heated
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

*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.
