Delicious Feta-Crusted Salmon


"I first created this dish when my family suggested I try something other than the same tired (yet still yummy) Asian salmon dish. I whipped this up out of ingredients I had on hand. They thanked me profusely. Now I have a new dish to use. It's pretty rich in flavor, but not so high in fat (depending on what kind of ingredients you use). Enjoy!"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and lightly oil. Place salmon onto foil and set aside.
  2. Mix together feta cheese, mayonnaise, cream cheese, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder in a bowl until smooth. Spread mixture over salmon, then sprinkle panko over top, covering completely.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until easily flaked with a fork, about 35 to 45 minutes.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Mmmm- I absolutely loved this!! The feta was so good! I used sundried tomato and herb feta. I totally omitted the extra salt and it was perfect. I didn't want to open my block of cream chees...

We thought that this was good, but WAY too salty. I used a 1 1/2 lb fillet, 1/2c. panko instead of 1/3c. then baked for 20 minutes. The fish was was well done, the bread crumbs not crunch- whi...

This is such a great tasting way to serve salmon. I've tried it on chicken too, though it isn't as good. I changed nothing about this recipe. I make this at least a couple times a month- my h...

*****COMPANY WORTHY***** This recipe is absolutely divine! I cut the recipe in half only because I had 2 fillets of salmon. The creamy feta topping was so rich and decadent on the salmon. An...

Even though I had to make a few changes due to ingredients on hand, this was very good! I thought I had salmon in the freezer, but it was Mahi mahi. I only had honey mustard and raspberry balsam...

Love this recipe! Tonight I was out of feta so I substituted crumbled blue cheese and skipped the cream cheese and my husband thought it was even better than the feta version.

Amazing! This is, without a doubt, the best salmon recipe I have ever tried. I used small salmon fillets, so my cooking time differed, but that's the only change I made. We're looking forward to...

This was really good, but 35-45 minutes was WAY too long too bake on 400. I thought it seemed to long and thank goodness I checked it at around 20 min and it was already borderline overcooked. ...

Mmmm, this was really good! I cut the recipe in half since I was not using such a big piece of salmon (smaller pieces). Did everything as stated but left out the onion powder since I didn't ha...
