Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Place 3 cups of water in a medium sized pot, set high on stove.

Pour the extra virgin olive oil into the bowl, along with the rest of the ingredients. Take your Ruby Bay salmon jerky and cut each piece in half, proceed to placethe pieces into the mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients together then place into a medium sized baking pan. Finally, sprinkle the panko bread crumbs, sliced brie cheese, and the remainder of paramesan cheese on top. Place in the oven for 30 minutes.
