Asiago Baked Salmon

When I got to high school, I hadn't even had pepper jack cheese.  I think working at McDonald's in high school around the super nasty plastic yellow cheese kind of scared me away from cheese for awhile.  However, I'm starting to come around to trying different kinds of cheeses.  When I found out that my husband had never heard of Asiago cheese, I went searching for a good recipe, and found this Asiago Baked Salmon.  It seemed like a great way to introduce him to something new.

Asiago Baked Salmon
barely adapted from How Sweet It Is
2 salmon filets
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tablespoon dried parsley
3 tablespoons grated Asiago cheese
1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon chopped red onion

1) Preheat oven to 400.
2) Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. In a bowl, mix yogurt, cheese, red onion, parsley and garlic together. Spread on top of salmon. Bake until fish flakes – about 15 minutes.

My husband and I  thought this was an excellent dish.  I think the Asiago cheese becomes prominent over the greek yogurt, which I was perfectly okay with.  However, the greek yogurt still brings a creamy element to it.  None of the ingredients overrode the flavor of the salmon either, so you could still taste everything.

This meal came together really fast, about 20 minutes with the prep work, so you won't be working too hard for something delicious.
