Alternative Baked Salmon

Alternative Baked Salmon


"A simple and tasty salmon entree. Mayo and onions deliver a sweet and creamy flavor which is perfect with the crunch of the bread crumbs. I sometimes add nutmeg--totally optional. Tastes great with rice pilaf."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet, and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion with dried garlic, salt and pepper until tender. Transfer to a medium bowl, and mix with bread crumbs, mustard powder and mayonnaise. If necessary, add more mayonnaise to achieve a paste-like consistency.
  3. Place salmon fillets onto the greased baking sheet, and press the crumb mixture on the top so that it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until salmon is easily cut with a fork, then broil for 5 minutes to crisp the top.

Like a big fancy fishstick! omigod this was tasty. We ate it with steamed broccoli and egg noodles. We seasoned the noodles and broccoli with parmesan cheese, and I had lemon pepper on my brocco...

I love salmon that has a crispy topping, and the onions and bread crumbs were a great flavor! I used a squirt of dijon mustard because I did not have ground mustard.

Not bad, if you are going too add lemon juice, don't add too much, I did and it overpowered the fish. If I make this again I will not make that mistake again.

My family liked the salmon, but found the breadcrumb crust too dry and overpowering. They actually removed it. I follower your recipe exactly and it had such great reviews that I was disappoin...
