This is a recipe I created. I wanted Mexican food, but only had the seasoning and fish. I made this to cure my craving, and it was a success. Even my extremely picky daughter-in-law liked it!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.

    Advertisement
  • Mix bread crumbs and taco seasoning mix together in a shallow bowl. Press salmon into bread crumbs mixture until evenly coated. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded salmon onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.

  • Cook salmon in the hot oil until it flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

Other oil may be used.

Editor's Note:

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the breading ingredients. The actual amount of the breading consumed will vary.

This was incredible. So easy and quick. I made one small change because my panko crumbs kept falling off. I used one egg white to dip the salmon in before I put on the seasoning and bread crumbs. All and all I think any kid or adult that does not like fish will change their mind by eating this recipe. Read More

This recipe was decent. There is a lot of flavor in it. I will try it again with a thinner piece of salmon, as the one I used was really thick and over-powered the flavor of the crust. The crunchiness of the crust was fantastic, and in the thinner pieces of fish the flavor was wonderful. I think that this might be better as a marinade, mixed in with some virgin olive oil and allowed to soak the fish for about a half hour or so before cooking, then rolled into the bread crumbs. I'm going to try it this way next time and will revisit this review then. Perhaps the 3 star rating will come up a bit. Read More

I love the crunchy crust on the outside of the salmon. I used homemade taco seasoning from this site Taco Seasoning I. Will definitely make this salmon again! Read More

The past 4 months I have been an avid allrecipes user. I love this site! There were so few reviews on this one I thought I'd add one. This was crunchy & frankly quite yummy. My brother isn't a fan of salmon & he came back three times. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I found myself struggling to keep the crust attached to my fillets. I I just used a packet of Taco Bell seasoning & lightly added a pinch of Lawry seas salt prior to breading. If you want to try your salmon in a new way don't pass this one up. It's a keeper!

Super easy and quick to make. It tasted wonderful for such limited ingredients. We added greens freshly grated cheese red onions and diced tomatoes in a flour soft taco shell. Family love it and I can totally see us making outdoor gourmet at camp with this simple recipe! Read More

This was really good. I dipped the salmon in egg before coating so the breading would stick. served with yogurt mixed with lime juice and zest. Terrific. Read More

Great inspiration. I made a few substitutions. Tilapia filets instead of salmon. Marinated the fish in taco seasoning with olive oil for about 15 minutes. Used Jiffy Corn muffin mix with a TBSP of flour instead of bread crumbs to coat the fish before pan frying in hot oil. Yummy! Read More
