Snowcapped Salmon Recipe

The name of this recipe is suggestive of my state's wondrous beauty. Alaska is known for its salmon, and this is one of my favorite ways to prepare it.—Ella Hosmer, Central, Alaska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

"This recipe is definitely very rich and delicious. Whenever I make this, I'm always so proud of myself for making something so "gourmet" haha. Note: do NOT try to beat the egg whites by hand, use a mixer. I stood there for a good 5 minutes with my arm and wrist cramping up, trying to do it by hand."

"What wonderful recip. The topping is very rich but oh so light * I made just 1/2 of the recipe and I cut back just a little bit on the mayonnaise. Bake time for our filets were right on the Money. Rich, moist and delicious. A Keeper *

"Simple and delicious! I was halfway thru the recipe before I discovered I was out of Parmesan, so I substituted a light sprinkling of shredded Jack cheese, and it was a hit! The topping adds just the right amount of flavor without overwhelming the salmon. I will definitely be doing this again with Parmesan!"

"Excellent, but next time I'll make half the topping. Far too much for the amount of fish."

"Great recipe. The fish was very moist. I would use a larger pan so the topping does not flow over the entire group pf fillets."
