A simple and tasty salmon entree. Mayo and onions deliver a sweet and creamy flavor which is perfect with the crunch of the bread crumbs. I sometimes add nutmeg, totally optional. Tastes great with rice pilaf.
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Ready In: 20 Minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup herb seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise, or as needed
1 teaspoon mustard powder
2 salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet, and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onion with dried
garlic, salt and pepper until tender. Transfer to a medium bowl, and mix with bread crumbs, mustard powder and mayonnaise. If necessary, add more mayonnaise to achieve a paste like consistency.
3. Place salmon fillets onto the greased baking sheet, and press the crumb mixture on the top so that it is about 1/4 inch thick.
4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until salmon is easily cut with a fork, and then broil for 5 minutes to crisp the top.
