Remember when I told you about my #1 Go-To Meal? Well I just kicked it up a notch!
It’s been a long week already…and it’s only Tuesday…so last night I needed something quick and easy. As usual, I often turn to meals like this when my brain is just too tired to think of anything else.
As I was getting ready to cook the salmon, I remembered this bag of granola that the lovely Sarah of Sarah Learns sent me for my birthday! (*Sidenote- stay tuned for an awesome guest post from her later this week!) I thought it might be fun to use the granola as a breading of sorts for my salmon, kinda like the Pecan Crusted Haddock I made a few months ago.
This is really as simple as it sounds. I just dipped the salmon in egg and pressed it onto a plate of granola.
Serve it with a side of brown rice and some sweet potatoes & spinach cooked in veggie broth and you’ve got yourself a meal! This particular granola worked very well because there weren’t big chunks that would have been difficult to stick to the fish. The granola absorbs a little of the oil from the pan so it’s not SUPER crunchy, but it still gives a bit of crunch and a nice layer of sweetness to the dish!
What’s your favorite topping for fish?
