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

Servings: 2

Ingredients

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)

Directions

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.
