Step 1

Cooks tip: don't worry about the skin before cooking. It helps to keep the fish moist and flavorful, and comes away easily when the fish is cooked.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425 F./broil.

Step 3

In a small rectangular baking dish, pour oil and the juice from the lemon.

Step 4

Coat both sides of the fish in the oil/juice; season fish with salt, pepper, thyme leaves, and garlic powder; place Parmesan on a plate and press fish side down into the Parmesan (not the skin side) and place fish fish side up (skin side down) in the baking dish. Sprinkle any escaped cheese onto top of the fish.

Step 5

Broil about 4-6 inches from element (top rack) for 10-12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily.

This is a delicious way to make salmon or any fish really. I loved it and so did my mom! My mom brought over a salad to have with it. I might try having it with risotto or rice pilaf sometime along with a vegetable.

Great fish! I used a lime instead of a lemon but otherwise made as directed, using more fish to serve the three of us. Will be making this super easy recipe again. Thanks for sharing!
