Serves 2-4

  • 1 1/2-2 pounds 1/2 inch thick salmon fillet, skin on
  • 1/4 cup good quality dijon mustard (you might need more or less, depending on your fillets)
  • 3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Preheat broiler with rack adjusted so fish will be 2 inches from heating element. Line baking sheet or shallow roasting pan with foil.
  2. Place fillets on prepared pan. Using the back of a spoon, coat fillets with dijon mustard. Depending on your fillets, you might not use it all.
  3. In a small bowl, mix bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir in olive oil. You want crumbs to clump together, but not to be oily.
  4. Press the breadcrumb mixture evenly over the top of your fillets.
  5. Place the fish under the broiler and broil for 4 to 6 minutes or until done.
