Taco-Seasoned Salmon


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!

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup taco seasoning mix

  • 6 (3 ounce) fillets salmon fillets


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
