I get a lot of questions when I post fish recipes. It seems to be the one ingredient that is really hard to feel like you can get right. Well, with this recipe, you can’t go wrong. My salmon smelled pretty fishy after I thawed it. It seems like frozen fish always does. So, I created this recipe out of my desire to make sure it tasted good.
The key is to marinade the fish in a citrus type of base, then slather it in a high-flavor sauce, like dijon mustard.
Oh, and we can’t forget these crispy and light panko crumbs. They make it so crunchy and yummy. Much different than traditional bread crumbs. Lastly, you need a little butter in the pan to get it brown and bring out that buttery taste.
Panko Crusted Salmon over Greens
1 lb salmon
1/4 cup orange juice
2-3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Panko Crumbs
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
1 pkg cooked greens (spinach, kale, chard)
3-4 tablespoons Asian Sesame Dressing
In a large ziploc bag, combine orange juice and salmon. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Remove and slather with dijon mustard, be very liberal with it.
Serve over greens and drizzle with Asian Sesame Dressing.
