Crusted Baked Salmon

This salmon is coated with a very tasty home-made crumb mixture then baked until crispy!

A new cookbook that I was given. the new kosher by KIM KUSHNER, has some great looking recipes in it & I plan to cook my way through it!  This salmon recipe is the second thing I have made, the first was the Butternut Squash Soup with Corn

Last night I made this salmon recipe. I tried it before just to check it out then made it again last night to confirm we liked it ..& we did, so here it is!

You mix up the crumb recipe, it was enough for 2 small salmon fillets & keeps in the fridge for 2 weeks, then it gets put on some salmon. The salmon is spread with mustard & maple syrup which allows the bread crumbs to stick nicely, then popped into the oven for 35 min or so until the fish is cooked. If you make the crumb mixture ahead of time.. you can make this dinner really quickly.

Here is the recipe from KIM KUSHNER


Crumb Mixture

1/4 cup cornflake crumbs

1/2 cup panko crumbs

3 drained oil=packed sun dried tomatoes, cut up

zest & juice of 1 lemon

salt & pepper


1 skin on fish fillet about 2 lbs, ,  You can used any thick kind of fish..salmon, char or halibut, sea bass…I used salmon..*** I bought some frozen wild skin-on salmon at Costco

Yellow Mustard *** the first time I used yellow mustard, this time I used grainy mustard, both were good

Maple syrup *** the original recipe suggests date syrup, maple syrup, agave nectar or honey…I used maple syrup both times


Preheat oven to 375f

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Crumb Mixture

  1. Use your food processor, I used the small bowl that came with my large food processor, if you have a small one that will work well
  2. Put all fo the ingredients for the crumb mixture into the bowl tf the food processor. process until everything is mixed together & it is crumbly
  3. Adjust the salt & pepper as needed
  4. This keeps in the fridge for 2 weeks *** I put the date on the container since I never remember when I have made something!
  5. Set aside until needed for the fish & store the leftover crumb mixture in the fridge


  1. Put the fish skin side down on the lined baking sheet
  2. Put some mustard on the  fish …use as much as you think you will like..I don’t love mustard so I do not put much on
  3. Then drizzle some maple syrup over the fish
  4. Rub these 2 ingredients all over the fish
  5. Now put a thick layer of the crumbs on top pressing them on
  6. Put the prepared fish into the preheated oven & cook for approx 12 -15 minutes depending on how thick the fish is. Make sure the fish is cooled through properly before serving… you can tell by how brown the crumbs are I think & I cut into the fish. The recipe suggests peeking under the crumbs to look at the fish & then putting the crumbs back down!  I alway over-bake my fish a bit so just watch & see when it is done

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!

  1. Not sure if you will read this – hope you do. You sent a recipe for Crusted Baked Salmon a day or two ago – and I went to open it today (bought the salmon and I’m all ready!!!). And the recipe can’t be found on your site. Did you accidentally delete it? could you send me a copy. It looked so good I ran out today and got the ingredients!
