About this recipe: A simple and tasty salmon dish. Mayo and onions deliver a sweet and creamy flavour which is a perfect match for the crunch of the breadcrumbs. I sometimes add nutmeg; totally optional.


Serves: 2 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 60g herb seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 2 salmon fillets (about 2.5cm thick)

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a baking tray, and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion with garlic granules, salt and pepper until tender. Transfer to a medium bowl, and mix with breadcrumbs, mustard powder and mayonnaise. If necessary, add more mayonnaise to achieve a paste like consistency.
  3. Place salmon fillets onto the greased baking tray, and press the crumb mixture on the top so that it is about 6mm thick.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until salmon is easily cut with a fork, then grill for 5 minutes to crisp the top.
