  • 1 garlic clove, peeled

  • ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan (1 ounce)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken-breast halves, 2 pork tenderloins, halved (1 1/2 to 2 pounds total), or 1 1/2 pounds skinless salmon fillet (4 pieces)

  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard


  1. Heat oven to 400º F.

  2. Lightly coat a medium baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.

  4. Arrange the meat or fish in the baking dish. Spread with the mustard, then pat the crumbs on top.
