Panko Salmon. Crunchy, delicious and my own creation.

I wanted to prepare an elaborate meal last night, yet time got the best of me. Having a huge lunch did not help matters. As I was staring at the salmon fillets and the panko, I knew I wanted something different that the usual panko-egg mixture fry fish.

Refrigerator door wide open and staring at the content, act that I do quite often. I believe everyone around me think I  am doing it to keep cool. We live in Arizona and as a result, we do somehow have to keep cool. The mayonnaise and maple syrup stared back at me. Why not? After all,  I use the mayonnaise because  it softens the chicken. while the maple syrup gives that sweet taste to any sauces. In a dish the two ingredients went.

For the panko I have added a simple mixing of my favorite herbs. However let your imagination go free and wild and use your favorite herbs.

The bread crumbs idea is from a recipe that I prepared a while back and therefore liked the texture of it.

The preparation was easy, the oven did it all, consequently I had time to prepare a crisp green salad with a lemon vinaigrette.

The salmon was nicely tender and the panko mixture most of all was perfect to the bite. Love the crunchiness of it.

A dish that will definitely become fast our favorite.
