Crumb-Topped Salmon Recipe

Her family of fishermen keeps Perlene Hoekema of Lynden, Washington supplied with the star ingredient for this well-loved recipe. "Often we catch enough to share and sometimes send some of our delicious Northwest salmon to Michigan for my sister to enjoy," Perlene relates.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a bowl, combine first eight ingredients. Toss with melted butter.
  • 2. Place salmon in a 15x10x1-in. pan coated with cooking spray, skin side down. Top with crumb mixture, patting gently. Bake until golden brown and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
