This was a big time hit in our house this evening. I started with 1 big Coho Salmon steak from the freezer and made half the recipe which turned out utterly delicious.Even the sauce was a success. Gotta love the nutritional numbers are very good as well.. Made for Culinary Quest 2014, Salmon 101 Challenge.

Made this again and love it even more! It's salmon season and hubby is pulling in his limit of 6 pinks a day so I have a freezer full of salmon! I remembered this recipe and the next time he brought fresh salmon home, I baked 4 in the oven in foil and then boned them all at once. I kept 6 cups out and froze the rest in freezer bags.
I made the recipe exactly as it is written except I made a mistake by dumping the corn flakes whole instead of crushed! I just mixed it up anyway and let it set a bit in the fridge, they held together great!
Definately a keeper (haven't tried the sauce yet, I love tartar sauce too much, Thanks Evelyn
