I followed instructions and while the flavor was good, it turned out a little dry for me. Next time i might add a little oil or more butter but I would try it again. Served with broccoli cheddar rice and made a great meal.

Excellent! Very favorable and easy to prepare. I did bake it at 400 degrees. I will definitely use this recipe often.

I have used this recipe for years, since it first came out in the "Taste of Home" magazine many years ago!! The topping adds texture and wonderful extra flavor. I make it as is, no alterations to this one! Makes a delightful presentation as well! Appropriate for company.

Excellent recipe! I cut the measurements down for a 1lb salmon, and I added Mediterranean seasoning. My topping was thick and covered the entire filet, but I let it bake at 375 for closer to 30 minutes. It was awesome! Definitely making again!

We have made is recipe many times and it never fails. In fact, you end up with twice as much topping than needed when you make this, so I freeze half of it for the next time.

This was very flavorful with the fresh herbs and bread crumbs. It also looked very nice. Be sure to bake long enough for the crumb topping to brown and crisp up a bit. I will bake at 400 degrees next time.
