Basil Caesar Salmon

"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."

    I don't like fish and my husband loves fish especially salmon. I've tried several recipes and he says this one is the best. It's a keeper.

    We love this recipe. We have made it twice and everyone in the family enjoys it. Easy to make and it turns out perfect every time.

    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.

    I am eating this right now and it is really, really good. I didn't have any croutons; so, I used some Louisiana fish fry flour instead. I still used everything else that the recipe called for. My husband does not like Salmon that much and even he said that he liked this and would definitely eat again. While it was cooking it smelled so yummy and it absolutely taste as good as it smelled.
