Add some variety to everyday baked salmon with this easy Hemp and Pecorino Crusted Salmon recipe. You’ll love the crispy texture from the Hemp Heart crust and the salty flavor from the Pecorino Romano.
I found another way to use Hemp Hearts and it might just be my new favorite…
While I LOVE baking with Hemp Hearts (hello there Blueberry Crumble Bars) and sprinkling them on everything from smoothies, salads and yogurt bowls, I’m really excited to know that they also work amazingly well as a topping for fish.
Why use stale bread crumbs when you can use nutrient-dense Hemp Hearts and get an additional boost of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and vitamin E?
I’ve always been a seafood lover. Now only because it’s healthy, but there’s something about the texture and flavor as well. It just seems fresher and lighter than meat, in my opinion. And most seafood cooks quickly, which works great for impatient people like me who need quick cooking meals. I’m sure you’ve noticed from all the salmon recipes I’ve posted, but salmon is my fish of choice.
This crusted salmon looks fancy and impressive so it’s perfect for serving to guests, but trust me, it’s super easy! Once you have the pecorino cheese grated and combined with the Hemp Hearts all you have to do is add the mixture on top of the salmon and bake it up. While the salmon is cooking you can prepare some fresh veggies to pair with the fish. I’m a broccoli fanatic so I simply steamed some fresh broccoli and topped it with the extra pecorino I had on hand.
If you’re not familiar, Pecorino…
