Delicious Feta-Crusted Salmon

"I first created this dish when my family suggested I try something other than the same tired (yet still yummy) Asian salmon dish. I whipped this up out of ingredients I had on hand. They thanked me profusely. Now I have a new dish to use. It's pretty rich in flavor, but not so high in fat (depending on what kind of ingredients you use). Enjoy!"

Mmmm- I absolutely loved this!! The feta was so good! I used sundried tomato and herb feta. I totally omitted the extra salt and it was perfect. I didn't want to open my block of cream chees...

This is such a great tasting way to serve salmon. I've tried it on chicken too, though it isn't as good. I changed nothing about this recipe. I make this at least a couple times a month- my h...

excellent! i added diced fresh basil and tomatos, green onions, and shallots. this is a keeper! thanks for a time this will be grilled if it's not flooding!

Even though I had to make a few changes due to ingredients on hand, this was very good! I thought I had salmon in the freezer, but it was Mahi mahi. I only had honey mustard and raspberry balsam...

*****COMPANY WORTHY***** This recipe is absolutely divine! I cut the recipe in half only because I had 2 fillets of salmon. The creamy feta topping was so rich and decadent on the salmon. An...

Love this recipe! Tonight I was out of feta so I substituted crumbled blue cheese and skipped the cream cheese and my husband thought it was even better than the feta version.

Amazing! This is, without a doubt, the best salmon recipe I have ever tried. I used small salmon fillets, so my cooking time differed, but that's the only change I made. We're looking forward to...

We thought that this was good, but WAY too salty. I used a 1 1/2 lb fillet, 1/2c. panko instead of 1/3c. then baked for 20 minutes. The fish was was well done, the bread crumbs not crunch- whi...

We usually eat our salmon naked, and love it just fine that way. After we tried this my boyfriend says to make it this way from now on, very good as written.
