Lemon-Herb Crumbed Salmon

"This is a recipe I adapted from TOH. This is a beautiful presentation and goes together in around 1/2 an hour. Definitely pretty enough for company. It has a delicate flavor. I have posted the original amounts below, I adapted it for our healthier life-style. We have a friend in Alaska who sends us fresh salmon."

Ready In:




  • In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, parmesan, thyme and salt, set aside.
  • Place salmon skin side down on foil-lined baking dish.
  • Mix butter and lemon juice in bowl.
  • Brush salmon with butter-lemon juice mixture, using about 3/4 of the mixture.
  • Top with crumb mixture, patting it on by hand.
  • Drizzle remaining butter mixture over top.
  • Bake at 350 until flakey, about 25 minutes, can brown under broiler if desired.
  • Now, the original recipe called for 2-1/2 cups breadcrumbs, 6 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, twice as much parsley, 1 tablespoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 6 tablespoons of butter. We thought this tasted wonderful as is, you be the judge.

    This is a simple and tasty recipe. If you normally are wary about working with fish, this is a great recipe with which to get experience. The balance of the richness of the fish and the tang of the lemon makes a flavorful ensemble. Try serving this recipe with some orange peel rice, if you want to carry the citrus idea a bit further. Great recipe, Snicklefritzie!
