COOK TIME
20 Min

We dip salmon in butter and then coat it with seasoned potato flakes to make our delicious Potato-Crusted Salmon. It's so easy to do, and the crunchy coating really makes this salmon taste extra-special.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/3 cup instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (6-ounce) frozen salmon fillets, thawed, skin removed
  • 1/4 cup ( stick) butter, melted
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 7- x 11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a shallow dish, combine potato flakes, onion powder, salt, and pepper; mix well. Dip fillets in melted butter then coat with potato mixture; place in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle any remaining potato mixture evenly over the top. Drizzle remaining butter over the fillets.
     
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork and potato crust is golden. Serve immediately.

Not a huge fan of salmon, but my husband really likes it, so we have it every once in a while. We usually grill it outside , but it was raining today, so I was looking for an oven recipe and came across this. Made it just as written, except added some garlic powder, and I was too lazy to take the skin off, so i just left it on. Omg! In Mr. Food's words, it was soooo good! I will be making salmon more often now!!! I served it with rice pilaf and peas.

I inadvertently made this recipe using tilapia instead of salmon, however it was delicious.! I decided to add 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder, along with the onion powder, salt and black pepper to the dehydrated potato mixture. I think the garlic added a bit more flavor and seasoning to the mix. Next time I will make this again using the salmon as I had previous planned....

I also hate instant potatoes but my husband tried a recipe using them for a coating on baked chicken, and it was really awesome. It comes out crunchy and browns nicely and the flavor is great. You would never guess that's what's on the coating.

This was a nice easy week night fix , ready in an hour with prep and cook. We accompanied it with rice and broccoli for a tasty meal.

what if you don't want to use instant potatoes?? I don't like instant!! :/ Other then that it looks great!!! (:

in the recipe I would imagine you can omit the instant potato and possibly replace it wtih panka.

This is very good. It will be something we will do often. Thank you

I love Salmon. Looking forward to making this.

THIS SOUNDS SO YUMMY! I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY IT!

Sounds great!
