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
Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Coat a 7 x 11 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a shallow dish, combine the potato flakes, onion powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.
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.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the potato crust is golden. Serve immediately.
