"Since I love both salmon and Caesar salad, I created this 'delish fish' dish," relates Laurie LaClair from North Richland Hills, Texas. "It's hard to believe it takes so little effort to prepare such a showy company entree."

"This salmon dishes offers sophisticated flavor as well as nice crunchy texture. I made my own Caesar dressing using a Rachael Ray recipe ( see her dressing recipe for "Brutus Salad") and covered the salmon with that before topping with the crouton mixtures. Made all else according to this recipe. A keeper for our family!"

"My daughter made this tonight and it was fabulous. I am not a salmon fan and even I had seconds."

"DELISH! Very good and very rich. I substituted creamy Italian for the creamy Caesar. Makes more of the crumby topping than is needed, IMO."
