Feta Encrusted Salmon

    45 min

    I first created this salmon dish just out of ingredients I had on hand. The family loved it. It's pretty rich in flavour, but not so high in fat (depending on what kind of ingredients you use). Enjoy!

    Mmmm- I absolutely loved this!! The feta was so good! I used sundried tomato and herb feta. I totally omitted the extra salt and it was perfect. I didn't want to open my block of cream cheese for just one tablespoon, so I used 2% fat Greek yogurt instead of the cream cheese. Unfortunately I am out of panko crumbs so I had to use regular. I only had to bake about 25 minutes- I think the time listed is too long. Watch it carefully, as you really don't want to overcook salmon. We had broccoli, steamed rice, and sliced avocado with this. Loved it!  -  16 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is such a great tasting way to serve salmon. I've tried it on chicken too, though it isn't as good. I changed nothing about this recipe. I make this at least a couple times a month- my husband and I both love it.  -  09 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
