Salmon is one of my favorite foods. It is high in Omega-3 oils. This recipe comes from "Cooking with the Diabetic Chef". Serve with your favorite sauce.
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 lb salmon fillet, skinless and cut into 2-inch slices
- 1 cup skim milk
- Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
- In a shallow dish, combine the corn meal, black pepper and garlic powder.
- Dip the salmon slices into the milk and then dredge in the corn meal mixture, coating completely.
- Place the coated salmon on the prepared baking sheet, allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes.
- While the salmon rests, preheat oven to 375 degree; place the salmon sticks in oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the sticks flake easily.
I really liked the idea of this. Salmon is so good and my youngest like fish sticks! I made this as directed but only cooked them for about 12 minutes and they were done. I would cook them even less next time. Personally, I would add a bit more garlic powder and pepper. There is also enough coating for this recipe to coat twice as much fish! We enjoyed these with Sautéed New Potatoes With Parsley and Carrots Cooked With Bacon (Carottes Au Lard). Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks PaulaG! :)
This worked out really well for me. I made these for my children today and they really enjoyed them. I used a whole grain corn meal which was probably more coarse than the recipe intends, but it was fine. I already had the oven on at 425 for something else, so I just cooked the salmon sticks for 20 minutes and they were just right. I cut down the amount of pepper, but otherwise I think the seasoning was good - just needed a few pinches of salt. Made for ZWT6.
These were easy to make and a nice different way of serving salmon. I agree that after 25 minutes that mine were a bit overcooked but that is easily fixed next time. I made a home made tartar sauce and they were great for dipping. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
