Salmon fillets with a Mediterranean herb crust

Lachsfilets unter mediterraner Kräuterkruste - Wundermix GmbH

This dish reminds me of a vacation in Norway: completely without expectations, we entered a fish restaurant somewhere on the coast - and were amazed by this sensational, simple salmon dish:


  • 2 fresh salmon fillets with skin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt pepper

Herb crust:

  • 100g breadcrumbs or stale bread (processed into breadcrumbs)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 100g green olives (preferably the ones with anchovies)
  • 6 sprigs of parsley
  • 1 tsp rosemary needles
  • 1 teaspoon lemon thyme leaves
  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • 30g soft butter
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper

Preparation :
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Line the baking tray with baking paper.

Rub fish with oil, salt and pepper and place skin side down on the baking tray.

Herb crust:
Chop the olives, garlic and the herbs (Thermomix: 5 seconds level 5; Kenwood spice mill: 3 times P)

Mix the oil, butter, breadcrumbs and herb-olive mixture in a bowl with a wooden spoon and work with your hands until a coarse paste is formed.

Pour the crust mixture onto the salmon fillets and press down slightly.

Bake for 20 minutes and serve with foccaccia and salad.
