My Baked Salmon

FYI - salmon is a good source of those Omega 3 fatty acids we need for brain function(and possibly mercury which makes you go crazy). Last week I bought a couple of those vacuum sealed flash frozen filet things - they were on sale 4 for $5. But I had never cooked salmon or any kind fo fish so I referred to a couple recipes and came up this this smashingly awesome and super easy recipe:

This is for two servings (my husband doesn't eat seafood)

2 filets of salmon (thawed in the fridge for a few hours, then open package, wash and pat dry)
1/2 cup of crushed corn flake cerial seasoned up with salt, pepper, lemon pepper, rosemary, season all, and garlic salt ( just use whatever you like)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
1-2 T butter melted

Preheat Oven to 450 degrees. Dip the fish in the milk, then the flour, then the milk again, then the cornflake mixture, try to coat it pretty evenly. Place in a glass baking dish (I sprayed the pan with Pam). Drizzle on the melted butter and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is "flakey" (4-6 minutes per 1/2 inch thickness). It turned out fabu! And it's healthy - though they recommend pregnant and lactating women eat seafood with caution - farm raised fish is usually a safe bet.

this sounds so good. i always just fry fish in flour, with salt and pepper. but baking is better for you and the cornflakes sound good and crunchy.
