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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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. Read More

Excellent. Very tasty. Thank you very much for this wonderful recipe. It was fast and simple to make. I made this two weeks ago and was rather apprehensive as to how it would turn out since it didn't look particularly appealing when the crumbs had browned sufficiently. But I was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted though the lemon juice (2 tbsp) was a bit overpowering. Although I used 4 tbsp of mayonnaise the mixture of bread crumbs was rather dry but very crunchy. I used plain bread crumbs since I didn't have herb seasonsed ones 2 cloves of fresh garlic and a small onion. There weren't any leftovers. I made it again for tonight's dinner. This time I used 6 tbsp of mayonnaise 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp of dried dill to the bread crumbs and the result was excellent. The taste was just right and yes no left overs. But I've discovered that on both ocassions it took 30 minutes for the fish to cook at 350 degrees F. Read More

WOW! Fantastic recipe! I found the bread crumb mixture was too dry with the 2T of mayo so I added a little more as well as 2 tablespoons of lemon juice as it added just the right flavour to the fish. I also had to bake it for 10 minutes longer than specified. Delicious will definately be my main salmon recipe! Read More

My bf liked this recipe a lot but I thought the breadcrumb crust was too dry. It's possible that I didn't use enough mayonnaise. Although I didn't care too much for the breadcrumbs I did like the flavor of the mayonnaise and onions. It tastes very similar to the sauce of seafood dynamite served in Japanese restaurants.

Very good recipe. I liked it because I had all the ingrediants on hand- used low-fat sour cream instead of the mayo used fresh garlic instead of dried added a 'touch'of cayenne for a bit of heat and a pinch of dried parsley flakes for a punch. Wonderful. Read More

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. Read More

This is one of the best salmon recipes I've tried. All it needed was a wedge of lemon on the plate for a few squirts to give it just the right kick. Loved the broiled crunchy topping. Delicious! Read More
