We love this recipe as it is quick, easy and you don't have to be god/goddess in the kitchen to make something that tastes amazing and looks great too. You can even prep this recipe in advance and pop the crusted salmon fillets straight into the over from the fridge. 

What should I look out for when buying salmon?

When buying salmon, we look for wild-caught salmon and a nice rich orangey pink colour. 

Where can you get wild-caught salmon from?

You may be surprised but you can find wild caught, sustainably sourced Salmon in your local supermarkets. Alternatively, there are a number of great suppliers available online too. 

Can I do this recipe with a different piece of fish? 

Yes, you can! This recipe is great for using on top of any fish to make a delicious crisp topping.
