Crusted Baked Salmon

Crusted Baked Salmon

I know I have been posting quite a few salmon recipes lately but I promise you will love this one. It is moist, flavorful, and has a wonderful gluten-free crust on the top. Best of all, this crusted baked salmon takes only 30 minutes to prepare and that includes the Roasted Fingerling Potatoes in my previous post. You’ve gotta love that, especially on a busy week night!

I also made a side of blanched asparagus which took just a few minutes to put together. Alternatively, you can toss a salad. With the abundance of strawberries appearing at the grocery stores right now, this Spring Greens, Strawberry, and Feta Salad would also work splendidly to complete the meal. Bon appétit!

      I would imagine that salmon would be expensive in Malaysia but you do have so many other choices there. Over here, it is one of the more reasonably priced fishes and easily available kind of fish around. I have used it in all kinds of dishes. :) Glad you tried out those potatoes. They are really good.

    Cooked the salmon exactly the way you’d detailed – used mayo and rice crispies. I needed a quick way to cook the fish after the swimming lessons. Served the fish with plenty of steamed vegetables. Delicious and a lovely texture which the kids like.

      It is good, isn’t it? So fast and easy to prepare too. This is my current favorite way of baking salmon. :)
