OUR DAUGHTER sent us whole salmon for Christmas one year, so I searched the web and found this recipe. I have served this with a wild rice pilaf, and a green vegetable. With these colors, it makes a lovely presentation. --Judy Wilson, Sun City West, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine the vinegar, sugar and mustards; cover and process until smooth. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.
  2. Place salmon, skin side down, in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread mustard mixture over fillets; gently press bread crumbs on top. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Soft Bread Crumbs
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.
