New Recipe: Corn Flake Almond Crusted Salmon

This past summer B and I went to Canada with my folks. We had an amazing time visiting and fishing for salmon and halibut. We came home with an abundance of fish (including three halibut caught by yours truly and a 100lb halibut that B caught!). 

My 3 halibut. Much smaller than B's, but still pretty great

This was our second trip to Canada, and, as you can imagine, I am always on the lookout for new recipes!

The recipe below is a compilation of lots of different recipes I found using Pinterest and random cooking sites. Most of the original ideas came from this outstanding Taste of Home recipe:

This was a hit last night at the dinner table. It's gluten free and can be dairy free (as always, just watch the ingredients-especially on the corn flakes and mustard).


  • 1 fillet salmon (1 1/2 lbs) 
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cornflakes
  • 1/4 cup crushed/chopped almonds (you could also add pecans to this. I am allergic so I did not)
  • Cooking oil (I used coconut oil)
Preheat oven to 450.Combine honey and mustard and brush over salmon. Place the cornflakes almonds in a small food processor; cover and process until ground. Press onto salmon.Oil baking dish with cooking oil (I just rubbed the coconut oil onto the dish and then left a couple very small pats of the oil around the dish). Place fish in baking dish.Bake, uncovered, at 450° for 18-22 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

I served with brown rice and green beans. It was excellent!

I wanted to share. Any other great fish recipes out there? Post links in comments! Hope you enjoy this recipe.

Catch ya later!
