Come back each week
to try a different recipe
from one of my cookbooks.

Recipe of the Week:

Classy Parmesan basket

Page 71 of Salmon, Desserts & Friends
makes one basket

These make a beautiful presentation. They have a lacy, delicate look to them.


Heat a 10” skillet over medium-high heat.

Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese into a disk shape (using less cheese around the edges so it looks lacy). When cheese is slightly golden underneath, carefully remove it using a spatula.

Quickly drape cheese disk over an upside down glass, golden side up and press to form a bowl.

Allow to cool completely. Cooled baskets can sit several hours.

This recipe produces one basket. Repeat instructions until you have the number of baskets needed.

Fill basket with mixed greens and top with smoked salmon.
