    Thorsten's Note:

    For salmon enthusiasts like me this could be the start of a fantastic ‘salmon week’ (see parts II + III). This combination of fresh salmon filet and mashed potatoes will seduce you to eat more and more and more. The use of olive oil for the mashed potatoes adds an additional flavour. It is easy to make and delicious. Serve it with a green or a tomato salad.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For the salmon

    • 3/4 lb salmon fillet, fresh and without skin, about 1-1 1/2 inch thick
    • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped (preferably flat leaf)
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste
    • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped (preferably flat leaf)
    • olive oil, for the casserole form

    For the mashed potatoes

    For the crust


    1. 1
      NOTE: Prepare fish and onions while potatoes are cooking.
    2. 2
      For fish: grease form. If necessary, cut fish into large pieces so that fish can be evenly put into casserole form. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle 2 tbs parsley over salmon. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375 F (200 C).
    3. 3
      For onions: cook chopped onions in olive oil until soft (for about 1-2 minutes).
    4. 4
      Peel and cook potatoes in salted water for about 20 minutes until tender. Drain and mash potatoes. Add olive oil and add so much of the milk to have a spreadable consistency.
    5. 5
      Add onions, garlic and nutmeg. Salt to taste.
    6. 6
      Spread potatoes over fish.
    7. 7
      Mix bread crumbs and parmesan. Add enough olive oil to moisten the crumbs. Sprinkle over the potatoes.
    8. 8
      Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes until crust is golden brown. If it is getting to brown, cover it with aluminium foil.
    9. 9
      Directly before serving sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
    10. 10
      NOTE: time to boil potatoes is not included in cooking time, because you use it for the preparation of the other ingredients.

      I was expecting much more based on all the positive reviews. We thought this was OK, but there are so many better ways to make salmon.

      I can't give you enough stars for this, our fussy little gourmet was digging this! For weeks he only ate youghurt and this is the first real food he ate. I subtituted parsley with cilantro because that was what I had. Used only 1/4 cup of milk to make the mash and used yellow potato since I couldn't find yukon. Everybody is right, the mash is best, so yummy.
