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 Recipe #304533 and Recipe #425369. 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.
