Coconut Crusted Salmon

 

Salmon fillets are breaded with unsweetened coconut and baked until the coating is crispy and the salmon is tender. Select Wild Salmon fillets. The salmon is adhered with a thin coat of mayonnaise but an egg wash will work well if you prefer.

Preparation Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425.

Sprinkle each fillet with a light pinch of salt and pepper.

Spread the mayonnaise on the flesh of each. Alternatively, if using the egg wash, whisk the egg in a shallow dish and dip the flesh (not the skin) into the wash.

Shake the coconut in a shallow dish. Dip in and adhere the flakes onto the salmon.

Place skin side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. Sprinkle with another pinch of salt— only if desired.

Roast for 6-10 minutes until the salmon is barely firm to the touch.

Alternatively, if you want more of a golden crust, bake only 4-8 minutes, until almost firm. Then cook under your broiler for about 2-3 additional minutes. Watch it carefully under the broiler as it can go from white sparkly flakes to burnt quickly.
