  • 1 lb Salmon divided into 4 equal parts
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp salt sprinkled over fish for seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp salt for breadcrumb mixture
  • 1/8 tsp fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Mixed fresh herbs including tarragon, chives, parsley, cilantro, If you do not have fresh herbs, use a 1/2 Tablespoon of each dried herb
  • 1 cup whole wheat crackers mashed made into crumbs, I usually place mine in a zip lock bag and mash with a meat tenderizer
  • 2 eggs beaten well
  • 1/2 lemon cut into wedges


  • Preheat oven to 425º
  • Season salmon with oil, 1/8 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper
  • Place salmon on a sheet tray and top with the fresh herbs
  • In a bowl, combine the eggs, cracker crumbs, the remaining salt and a dash of pepper.
  • Place the cracker mixture on top of the herbs and press into the fish to make a crust.
  • Place sheet tray into oven and bake until there is just a small bit of pink in the middle of the salmon, which should be about 5 minutes
  • Put oven on broil and cook an additional 2 minutes to brown the crust.  Make sure to watch the fish, so as not to burn it.
  • Serve with the lemon wedges.
