Oma's Easy Salmon Fillet Recipes
There are many baked salmon fillet recipes, aka gebackener Lachs, and so many ways to cook salmon, but this one is special. So easy and so delicious, you'll make it often. It's an absolutely wonderful dish for company. The first recipe shows a simple way how to cook salmon fillet, either from frozen or fresh fish.
I usually use frozen salmon fillets, letting them thaw first. However, you can bake them right from frozen, allowing extra baking time.
Oma's Easy Baked Salmon Fillets
- 4 salmon fillets, 4-oz each
- 2 - 3 Tbsp mustard (I prefer using Dijon mustard!)
- ¼ cup bread crumbs
- ¼ cup olive oil
- salt, freshly ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Lightly grease baking pan.
- Place salmon in baking pan with skin side down.
- Brush mustard on salmon, season with salt and pepper.
- Mix bread crumbs and olive oil in a small bowl. Gently spread mixture on top of each fillet.
- Bake, uncovered, until fish flakes easily, about 15 - 20 minutes.
- Line baking pan with foil and grease foil. This makes clean-up a breeze.
- Add 1 tsp of Parmesan cheese to bread crumbs.
- Use Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs.
- Use melted butter instead of olive oil.
- Use either fresh or frozen fillets. When using frozen (no need to thaw), just add a few extra minutes to the baking time.
The above recipe is not German in origin. But, it's one hubby and I LOVE! However, it can easily pass for one, because one traditional German way of eating fish is with mustard sauce.
Here I've served the salmon fillets with Hasselback potatoes and roasted asparagus.
In my recipe, the mustard is brushed on the fish before baking - much easier than making a sauce! It's the one that's pictured here, served with Hasselback potatoes and roasted asparagus.
Another Salmon Fillet Recipe ...
You'll find the second of the salmon filet recipes as a super one to make when you're expecting company.
The Salmon Casserole with Spinach shown above can be made earlier in the day and popped in the oven in time to cook for dinner. It's a traditional German dish.
And another Salmon Fillet recipe:
Here the Salmon Fillets are seasoned with salt and pepper. Place 2 slices of orange or, as in this photo I used mandarine slices, onto each fillet. Add a knob of butter on top. Sprinkle with dill. Bake as above. Enjoy!
Salmon is such a healthy fish that it should find its way into your regular meals. It is an "oily fish" which is high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. It is also high in protein and vitamin D.
