Crunchy Salmon

Sunday is wine and cookies night.  My friend Jamie comes over, we hang out and drink wine, and Thing 1 gets cookies to keep him happy.  Awesome idea, I know! She is a vegetarian, but eats fish. We’ve talked salmon quite a few times now and in her honor I’m sharing this salmon recipe.

  • 1 ½ pounds salmon cut into 4 fillets
  • French’s fried onions

Honey Mustard Dressing:

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place salmon fillets skin-side down onto prepared baking sheet. Spoon honey mustard on top of salmon fillets. Top with canned fried onions.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes. If onions begin to brown too much, lay a piece of foil over the top of the salmon.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients until combined and smooth.

Succulent and crunchy with a sweet tang.

    This looks delicious! I will have to try using fried onions instead of breadcrumbs next time I make salmon. Thanks for giving me the link 🙂
