Potato Crusted Salmon with Mustard Cream Sauce


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 (7-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Idaho potatoes, peeled and shredded

For the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 shallots, diced small
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
  • 1 pinch dried thyme
  • 1 ounce Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream, scalded
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat a nonstick pan with olive oil. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Salt and pepper the fillets. Coat each fillet with Dijon mustard and then crust with shredded potato, pressing down to form smooth the potato over the top. If you grated the potatoes ahead of time, you can keep them in cold water until ready to use.
Add fillets to frying pan, potato side down and sear until golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes. Remove to a baking pan, potato side up, and finish by baking in oven, about 6 to 7 minutes, depending on thickness of fillet.
Prepare the sauce. Heat the butter in a small frying pan. Add shallots, peppercorns, garlic, and thyme, and sauté until shallots are tender. Add the Dijon mustard and flour and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    This recipe looks delicious and i will probably make it in the not too distant future…..but i wanted to make a comment or a query about it. It says SERVES 2 and i do like to eat fish, HOWEVER the recipe calls for 4 (7OUNCE) FILLETS….so each of the 2 people are to receive 14 ounces of fish for their portion?
