Fresh Herb and Feta Crusted Salmon

Fresh Herb and Feta Crusted Salmon

We all love salmon and eat it at least once a week. I usually do our standard Salmon with Garlic, Lemon, and Dill but this time I wanted to switch it up a bit. I decided to rub garlic all over the top then I added lemon juice. After seasoning it well with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, I sprinkled the top with freshly chopped dill and parsley followed by some feta cheese. I baked it in a HOT oven for 10 minutes and it turned out absolutely perfect. Medium rare, tender, healthy, and so flavorful. We all loved it and ate every single bite. I served this salmon with lemon wedges on the side, some Roasted Tomatoes with Pesto and Parmesan, and Garlic Rice.
