Dill Crusted Salmon

13 Jan

This recipe was inspired by Food Network Chef Anne Burrell who was inspired by Chef Mario Batali. It’s quick, healthy and delicious. Where can you go wrong?

Time: 10 minutes        Serves: 2


  • 2 salmon fillets, about 6-8 oz each
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup instant mashed potato flakes
  • 2 heaping tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • olive oil

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Heat enough oil to coat pan on stove top over medium heat.
  • Combine potato flakes and dill in a shallow dish. Season salmon with salt & pepper. Brush one side of salmon with egg. Press fillets egg side down into potato/dill mixture. Place fillets in pan, potato/dill side down. Cook for about 4 minutes, until well browned on that side. Transfer salmon, plain side down, to baking dish and bake for about 5 minutes or until desired doneness (flesh should be tender and easily flaked w/fork). Garnish with sprig of dill if desired.
