Parmesan Crusted Salmon:
4-6oz raw salmon

2T grated parmesan cheese
Spices as desired (tonight I used salt, pepper, cilantro and rosemary, just a pinch of each)

1. Rinse and pat dry piece of thawed or fresh salmon
2. Place in small baking dish that has been coated with coconut oil
3. In small bowl, combine mayo and spices.
4. Spread mayo mixture over salmon
5. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over all

Bake 350 degree oven for 10-20 minutes, depending on how well done you like it.
If cheese doesn't brown, put under broiler for a couple minutes.

First time I made this (Dana Carpender's book was my inspiration), even my 21 yr old son ate it!
