Parmesan & Cracker Crusted Salmon
2 Tbs. fresh grated Parmesan Cheese
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 (1 Lb. total) skinless salmon fillets, thawed
2 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice, seeds removed, divided
1/2 cup crushed Kashi Original 7 Grain Snack Crackers, divided
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix mayo, cheese, and cayenne pepper until well blended; set aside.
In a sealed ziplock bag, crush crackers using a mallet. Do not over crush to the point that the crackers are too fine. A few small chunks here and there give the fish a nice texture.
Place salmon on a greased foil-lined shallow baking sheet. Drizzle each fillet with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. Top each with mayo mixture and spread to evenly cover top of salmon. Sprinkle each fillet with 1/8 cup of cracker crumbs.
Bake, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with fork.
