Easy hazelnut encrusted salmon

    25 min

    Salmon is topped with a flavourful combination of hazelnuts, tarragon and orange zest, then baked to perfection. This sounds like a fancy recipe, but is fantastically easy. Your family will love it, but it's good enough for dinner parties, too.

    Just did this as a single portion for myself and it was tasty, however I think the mayonnaise was to thick and overpowered the rest of the dish. I will do it again but with much less mayonnaise.  -  08 Feb 2014


    We loved this ! It gets high marks for simple, fresh taste - doesn't cover the flavor of the salmon - and it's a breeze to prepare. I added a little Orange juice to the mayo and tarragon and mixed it up before I spread it onto the fish. I served fresh asparagus sauted in butter and some crusty dinner rolls. NO LEFT OVERS ! Thanks so much !  -  30 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this many times to rave reviews. Easy, looks lovely on the plate. I mixed in a Tbsp or so of orange juice to the mayo mixture. Also used a pinch of dried tarragon as I did not have fresh, worked out fine. Think I might try crushed macadamia nuts next time. This one is a KEEPER!  -  19 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
