Reviews for Crusted Salmon
"This was ok."
"Have served this twice to rave reviews! easy and delicious!"
"I love this recipe and so easy to make"
"This is one of my family's favorite way to have salmon! they have changed the name of the recipe, I panicked when I couldn't find it...glad I did!"
"Personally, I would have given this recipe 5 stars, but gave it 4 because the boyfriend didn't like it. He thought it was too sweet and described it as "sweet potato topping." Once he said it, that is what it tasted like, but I still thought it was very good on this fish."
"This was very fast and simple to put together. I made half the recipe as I was only cooking for 2 and it worked out great, though I did have quite a bit of the crust mixture left over. I cooked mine in the same cast iron pan I did the browning in. I think it needed just a little something else to give it a kick of flavor though, maybe a bit more seasoning salt or a little butter cut into the crust mixture."
"Resturant quailty recipe! As mentioned in an earlier review, I only made half of the pecan mixture and it was plenty."
"<p>This is one of my favorite salmon dishes! I got this recipe from my friend/neighbor years ago & I couldn't get enough! If you don't really care for salmon, at least try it once this way. This may just change your mind about salmon!</p>"
"My husband is not fond of Salmon but he always request this during Lent... my son can't get enough of this salmon."
"This was a really good salmon recipe, though not any more outstanding than other salmon recipes I have had. I may make it again. I will say, only about half of the pecan, etc. topping is really needed. I packed it on generously and still have a bowlful left over!"
