Okay without further ado, here's the recipe.

Serves 2

2 salmon filets (I used 4 small filet)
olive oil
Salt and pepper (I added pepper flakes)
balsamic vinegar (I used white balsamic vinegar)
fresh basil or dried herbs
Italian bread crumbs

Drizzle salmon with olive oil and balsamic vinegar
Sprinkle on seasonings.
Layer basil leaves on top
Drizzle more balsamic vinegar
Spread mayo over basil
Add bread crumbs and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

These are my first harvest of my basil leaves. My hands are tiny to begin with but these leaves made my hand look like a kid's hand=;)

Just to make a comparison on how big they are! This is a big tablespoon, the leaves make it look like a teaspoon!

Served the salmon on a bed of Jasmine steamed white rice. YUM!!!

The combination of the ingredients were just perfect. So delicious!

Since i had roma tomatoes waiting to be used, i decided to give the recipe a little twist by adding slices of tomatoes. Yum! as well.

Both dishes were wonderful. So easy yet very delicious. You've got to try this recipe, it's a winner!



  1. I bought salmon... and my basil is getting quite large, not as large as yours, but large... Looks wonderful!

  2. This looks really good! Yummy yummy!

  3. Hello, Kim! I have no idea why my basil are just growing and growing..i call it basil on steroids=;) perhaps the variety of basil i bought? If you make this, try adding tomatoes it's good too!
