Oma's Easy Salmon Fillet Recipes ❤️
➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson
There are many baked salmon fillet recipes, aka gebackener Lachs, and so many ways to cook salmon, but these are special. So easy and so delicious, you'll make them often.
They are absolutely wonderful dishes for company. The last 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.
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.

Sharing traditional German meals, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our heritage.
The recipes below are not German in origin. But, they are ones hubby and I LOVE! The last one can easily pass for German, because one traditional German way of eating fish is with mustard sauce.
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.

Makes 4 servings
- 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.
