I love the flavors of this dish! After reading the reviews of this recipe, I brainstormed a little and came up with my own method of cooking this dish. A lot of reviewers had trouble with the crumb topping not sticking. So, I dipped the salmon in a beaten egg then covered ALL sides with the crumb mixture. Half a recipe of the crumb mixture was plenty to cover 4 salmon filets. I got the sauce started simmering (didn't change a thing there). Then I heated 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a separate skillet on medium-high heat and browned the salmon, flipping so all sides were brown. Then I placed the browned salmon in the sauce to finish cooking for about 15 minutes. I served it over brown rice with a side of mixed veggies. I was questioning the use of teriyaki sauce, but I put it in and it was delicious!

too much work for a mediocre flavor

The parmesan crust was absolutely amazing! I left out the teriyaki sauce because it just didn't sound like it would complement the other ingredients. The only thing I recommend is marinating your salmon ahead of time, to give it more flavor. I suggest using a very simple marinade of white wine and minced garlic.

This recipe was very good and easy to make. To make the parmesan side crusty I cooked it in butter in another pan instead of flipping it over to cook in the terk/wine sauce. I also saved the sauce and put on top of salmon, it was delicious! My fiance told me I had "out done myself."

This was a terrific salmon recipe! The sauce had great flavor, but wasn't too overwhelming. The parmesan crust didn't get crusty though. I also marinated the salmon in teriyaki sauce for an hour before cooking. i will use it again.

WOW!!! What an easy delicious recipe. Better than any restaurant salmon. My kids raved about it. My son, who loves Salmon, said it was the best he ever had. Definitely a keeper in my recipe box!!! And real easy to make. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks!!!

I switched up the recipe by marinating the salmon in the wine and garlic mixture for 2 hours first. Then dregged the salmon through an egg wash and then proceded to coat it with the parmesean crust. This allowed the crust to stay "affixed" to the salmon as well as still providing the flavor of the white wine to permeate through.

I prepared this for my wife's birthday on New Year's Eve. My wife and our guests raved that it was the best salmon recipe that they had ever tasted. We added fettucine with a garlic butter suace and fresh sugar snap peas to complete the meal. Save this recipe after you try it!
