Crushed rice cereals make this Crusted Baked Salmon gluten free. Deliciously moist and flavorful served with roasted potatoes. Only 30 minutes to prepare.
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!
