This was delicious! The crumb topping was full of great flavor, and the baked salmon fillets came out nice and moist and flaky. And, as an added bonus, the spiced mayonnaise really added another level to the fish. I'm ashamed to admit, that I did not let the herb rest in the red wine vinegar for 30 minutes. (My fault, I totally misread) But, it turned out incredible depite that, just full of great, fresh flavors.

This was great. I reduced the amount of butter by alot. I used cooking spray in my pan and then butter spray on the fish prior to the bread crumbs. The flavor of the fish was complimented and not covered up. My fish took 30 mins to get to the desired doneness.

Overall, a very nice recipe. I made a half recipe just for my husband and myself. Even making only half, I found the breadcrumbs were more than I needed to cover a 1 lb. piece of salmon so I have leftovers to use for another dish. I really liked the parsley mayonnaise, although next time I think I will leave out the cilantro as I don't really care the taste of that particular herb. I would use a higher oven temperature next time also. The fillets I get at my supermarket are quite thick and don't cook through in the time and at the temperature indicated.
