This is the season for wild salmon. It’s so flavorful, it only needs a little olive oil and salt and pepper and it cooks in minutes. At other times of the year, good quality wild salmon can be found in the frozen seafood section of the supermarket.
Fresh salmon needs only quick, simple cooking. For this recipe of herb crusted salmon, the salmon is cooked under the broiler. The bread-crumb crust is added just before the salmon is finished cooking to keep the crumbs from burning.
