Baked Salmon with Parmesan Herb Crust

I thought I had sworn off [cooking] salmon.  I don’t know why, I just could not cook salmon no matter what I did.  I can cook a lot of things – but salmon just wasn’t one of them.  I decided that when I wanted my fix, I would get it at a restaurant.  But I decided to give it one more shot.  Everyone says how easy it is to cook and if everyone is saying that…well…I must be doing something wrong!  I’ve tried foil packet salmon, blackened salmon, baked salmon, you name it, I’ve tried to make it.  I always end up thinking it’s not done, so I end up cooking it for too long.  And that, my friends, has been my fatal error.  Salmon is supposed to be pink – very pink – when cooked through.  So don’t wait for the pink to go away, or you will be suffering the same fate as I have – dry, overcooked salmon.
