This Roasted Pepper and Ricotta Cheese Bruschetta is SHOCKINGLY DELICIOUS! There’s a smokey sweetness to every bite that just melts in your mouth with the nice crispy crunch of a toasted French Baguette. If that doesn’t convince you to try this recipe, then check out my Tomato and Basil Bruschetta recipe or my Broccoli and Cheese Dip listed below.
This Smothered Salmon recipe is something I came up with years ago. My wife has a serious love for this fish so I wanted to create something that was undeniably the best and believe it or not, this recipe can be prepped and cooked in just 15 minutes. It has a Garlic, Wine and Butter Broth that is just amazingly smooth. I actually use this to saute the Onions and Peppers as well as steam the fish. I like to prop the Salmon right over the top of the veggies so the filet can steam from below as well as from above when I top the pan with a lid. Then after just a few short minutes I smother the fish with Mozzarella Cheese, then cover back up with the lid long enough for it to melt. Once it has, you have a perfectly cooked Salmon that is ready to serve. Total cooking time is, approximately, 6 to 7 minutes. And once it hits the plate, I dash pieces of Bacon, I sprinkle freshly chopped Parsley and then I splash some Balsamic Vinegar right over the top.

1 Salmon Fillet
1/2 Bell Pepper
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cube butter
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 tbsp fresh or dried Parsley
1 to 2 tbsp chopped Bacon or bits
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper Salmon to taste
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Mix together all dry ingredients first, then add the yogurt and the milk. Need the dough for 5 to 10 minutes until it’s smooth. Then roll into a ball and place in a bowl with a towel over the top and let the dough rise for at least 2 hours. Once the dough has risen, flatten out the dough to knock out the air and roll into a cylinder shape. Cut into equal portions starting with the center, cutting in half and in half again until all portions are equal. Now roll the dough flat into oblong shapes approximately 1/8 of an inch thick. Heat each one in a pan or on a grill set on Med high for 1 minute then turn, if you want to keep it simple. Otherwise cook only one side and put garlic and Coriander on the other side and place under a broiler for a minute to a minute and half. Remove the Naan from the heat and rub with butter and serve warm.
