I always love being invited over for dinner- someone else to do the cooking. I love looking forward to the unknown as to what is going to be served.  Isn’t it like, the best ever?

But I will sometimes cheat and ask ‘What’s for Dinner?’ ahead of time.  Sometimes I’m lucky and get the dish on the Supper Club menu- much to my hearts satisfaction- thanks girls!

Anyway- a few weeks back my Fireman and I spent the evening with some close friends and were spoiled with a delicious heart healthy meal.  After just one bite I was pulling out a note pad and pen from my bag to take down the recipe.

Two words: quick & simple.  Literally a 5-ingredient meal.. ok, well if you count cooking spray, then it’s a 6-ingredient meal. 

Simple combo of prepared basil pesto and reduced fat EVOO mayo..

..paired with a mixture of Italian-style bread crumbs and sharp Parmesan cheese.

Broil for 12 minutes, and done! 

Seriously- You’re done.  How quick and simple was that? 

I added a slightly nutty flavor with some toasted sesame seeds mixed in with my parma-bread crumbs.  Just an extra step- not desperately needed.

Since having it at our friend’s house for dinner that night we’ve had it at home.. let’s see.. 3 times now. 

Repeat meals are few and far in between.  Unless my Fireman requests it we typically will have something different on most nights. 

This one is really great- kind of like Pesto Chicken.  

Yep- so very yum.

  1. WOW! You had me at pesto… and panko… AND salmon!!! Some of my favorite things! I am also liking your addition of lemon pepper. Must try this soon!

  2. That looks awesome! I make a salmon with pesto but I don’t have the panko addition-Love it!

  3. I made this tonight and absolutely LOVE it! I made it for one, but wish I could have eaten two pieces of this yummy salmon. I’m so glad I found a salmon recipe that is quick, simple, and delicious. Thank you!
