Baked Succulent Salmon Fillets

Salmon coated with breadcrumbs seasoned with fresh lemon zest and tangy dill, baked and ready to serve in minutes…

Salmon is a fish that’s rich in omega-3 fats and widely available in the US. However, I am not a huge fan of salmon and so I end up buying other fishes from the fish market. My husband being a salmon fanatic, gets to eat this fish only at restaurants. During my last shopping, when I saw this orange beauty I grabbed a bag of them and had kept in the freezer. I wasn’t quite sure about how and what to make with them. This afternoon, I gave it some thought and instantly pulled them out of the freezer. In just 15 minutes, a flavorful entree was deliciously ready.
