    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.

    EXCELLENT! Family loved it and will definitely make again! Made a few adjustments: used 4 cloves fresh garlic; 3 tbsp mayonnaise; 2 tbsp lemon juice; baked about 25 minutes before broiling.  -  10 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Excellent. Very tasty. Thank you very much for this wonderful recipe. It was fast and simple to make. I made this two weeks ago and was rather apprehensive as to how it would turn out since it didn't look particularly appealing when the crumbs had browned sufficiently. But I was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted though the lemon juice (2 tbsp) was a bit overpowering. Although I used 4 tbsp of mayonnaise, the mixture of bread crumbs was rather dry but very crunchy. I used plain bread crumbs since I didn't have herb seasonsed ones, 2 cloves of fresh garlic and a small onion. There weren't any leftovers. I made it again for tonight's dinner. This time I used 6 tbsp of mayonnaise, 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp of dried dill to the bread crumbs and the result was excellent. The taste was just right and yes, no left overs. But I've discovered that on both ocassions, it took 30 minutes for the fish to cook at 350 degrees F.  -  29 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    WOW! Fantastic recipe! I found the bread crumb mixture was too dry with the 2T of mayo so I added a little more as well as 2 tablespoons of lemon juice as it added just the right flavour to the fish. I also had to bake it for 10 minutes longer than specified. Delicious will definately be my main salmon recipe!  -  09 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
