Parmesan-Baked Salmon recipe

I haven't done a "healthier eating" post for a while, but I've been doing pretty good at sticking to my goals.  I've been finding different recipes for making fish once a week, and I wanted to share this salmon recipe, as it's become a favorite of mine (unfortunately, not a favorite of Annika's but I'll still keep making it anyway).  This recipe is from the Kraft Canada website.

Parmesan-Baked Salmon

1/4 cup Miracle Whip Dressing
2 Tbsp Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (it doesn't sound like much, but it gives it a nice kick)
4 salmon fillets (I usually do 2 fillets, and do half the recipe)
2 tsp lemon juice
10 Ritz Crackers, crushed (about 1/3 cup)      

Heat oven to 400°F.  Mix dressing, cheese and pepper until well blended.  Place fish in shallow foil-lined pan; drizzle with lemon juice. Top with dressing mixture; spread to evenly cover fish. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs.  Bake 12 to 15 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork (I've been using frozen fillets, so I bake them at 450 for 20 min, as directed on the package).

It's pretty easy to make (ready in about half an hour) and quite delicious.  I definitely recommend it!
