Potato-Crusted Salmon

Sometimes chicken and ground beef just don't cut it for dinner - you need a dish that's special once in a while. Potato-Crusted Salmon is an easy baked salmon recipe that seems fancy, but is so incredibly simple to make. This dinner recipe for two is so fantastic that you just need to make it to believe it! The salmon emerges from the oven salty and flaky. The potato crust gives the fish a perfect crunch with every bite. Serve it with asparagus on the side, and you have a full meal ready in a little over half an hour.


While the salmon is baking, steam about 1/2 pound fresh asparagus. Let it cool slightly then top it with a vinaigrette dressing made by combining balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper in an empty bottle and giving it all a shake.


Cooking Time30 min


  • 1/3 cup instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 3 tablespoons Zoye But-R-Lite


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Coat a 7 x 11 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a shallow dish, combine the potato flakes, onion powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.

  3. Dip the fillets in the Zoye But-R-Lite, then coat with the potato mixture and place in the baking dish. Sprinkle any remaining potato mixture evenly over the top. Drizzle the remaining Zoye But-R-Lite over the fillets.

  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the potato crust is golden. Serve immediately.

So absolutely delicious that I could virtually eat it every single day! It is such a light and wonderfully tasty meal which, to me, it tastes of summer days and warm evenings. We did have it with garden fresh steamed asparagus which were also very good. The whole family loved the meal and we devoured every last scrap.

What is Zoye But-R-Lite? Is it butter flakes? I am going to guess so. Wild salmon is really nutritious and their are a lot of deals on it this time of year. Most fish I don't like a lot of, but I do like salmon. I also happen to have a box of potato flakes that I never use. It's the perfect meal for two.

Zoye But-R-Lite is healthier butter alternative. You can likely find it in your local grocery store or health food store. You could also use regular butter if you prefer! -Editor, RecipeLion.com
