About

I wanted to prepare an elaborate meal last night, but time got the best of me, and 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 and I believe everyone around me think I am doing it to keep cool, the mayonnaise and maple syrup stared back at me. Why not? After all I use the mayonnaise to soften chicken, and the maple syrup gives that sweet taste to any sauces. In a dish the two ingredients went.

For the panko was a simple mixing of my favorite herbs, but I am sure any herbs will do. The bread crumbs idea is from a recipe that I prepared a while back and I liked the texture of it.

The preparation was easy, the oven did it all, and I had time to prepare a crisp green salad with a lemon vinaigrette. The salmon was nicely tender and the panko mixture was perfect to the bite.

Bon Appetit!
