Herb-crusted Salmon Recipe

Who doesn't love Martha Stewart recipes?! I made her Herb-crusted Salmon tonight for dinner and DH and I practically inhaled this! Here's a photo I snapped of the finished dish:

Tastiest salmon dish I've made to date! I used multigrain bread instead of white and instead of following the salad part of the recipe, I threw together my own salad of mixed greens, broccoli sprouts, and avocados. I got to use my new food processor for this one. It turned out to be a very quick dish to prepare too: done in half an hour.

Here's the recipe:

Serves 4

  • 3 slices white sandwich bread

  • 1 cup fresh parsley

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 5 ounces baby spinach

  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside. In a food processor, combine bread, parsley, and 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Pulse until coarse crumbs form.

  2. Place salmon on prepared sheet; season with salt and pepper. Spread top of fillets with Dijon; top with crumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere. Roast until salmon is opaque throughout, 11 to 13 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine lemon juice and remaining oil; season with salt and pepper. Add spinach and onion; toss to combine. Serve salmon with spinach salad.

This is definitely a keeper in our recipe files and I highly recommend it!
