Herb Crusted Salmon......

My favorite restaurant here in Charlotte (Charley's... no, NOT O'Charlies) http://www.charleysrestaurant.com changed their menu about two years ago.. they stopped serving my ultimate favorite there.. an herb crusted salmon with a sauce that was TO DIE FOR.

Does anyone have a trusted recipe for herb-crusted salmon ??? Salmon has never been the same since they took it off the menu!!

Thank heavens they havent changed the small mixed baby green salad!!

The herb crusted part is easy, but describe the sauce that they served with it. We may be able to help you duplicate, or at least come close to duplicating their recipe.

I belive it was a cream/butter sauce with white wine. and either the parmesan was in the sauce or it was on the salmon.

does this sound like something you've made before??

Did the herb crust have breadcrumbs mixed in it or were the herbs just seared into the salmon on their own?

oh oh!! yes breadcrumbs... but VERY VERY lightly.

does dijon sound too outrageous? not a lot.. just a hint maybe.

it was a very subtle melt in your mouth kind of dish.

Try this. Use the crust and fish portion of this recipe, except replace the macadamia nuts with fresh grated parmesan, and replace the cilantro with dill, tarragon, and parsley:

Use this sauce, but half the recipe depending on how many potions you make:

whoa IC, your halibut recipe sounds sooooo good!! Unfortunately macadamia nuts are extremely difficult to find here in Rome, and if we do it is very very expensive... (the last time we saw a bag of 75g shelled nuts for 3, but they were no good, as we wanted them for either ice cream or cakes, and they were salted!) Maybe I will try with cashews, or do you have some other suggestion for a sub?

Hey urmaniac, try almonds or even pine nuts. The pine nuts might be too soft though.
