With tender leeks and heart russet potatoes these crisp, flakey Potato Crusted Salmon Fillets make an ideal weeknight fish dinner.

(Makes 4 servings)

Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 15 mins Total Time: 30 mins

What You Need

  • 2 small russet potatoes (about 1 lb.) washed, shredded

  • ½ medium leek washed, sliced thin

  • ¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

  • 2 tsp. ground white pepper

  • 2 tsp. olive oil

  • 1 tsp. unsalted butter

  • 4 (4-oz) raw salmon fillets skinless

How To Make

  1. Drain potatoes in a colander; pat them as dry as possible with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.

  2. Combine potatoes, leek, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well.

  3. Heat oil and butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

  4. Place four ⅓ cup mounds of potato mixture in skillet. Press a salmon fillet into each mound. Top evenly with remaining potatoes; cook for 6 to 7 minutes on each side, or until potatoes are nicely browned and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Recipe Notes

Use only the tender white part of the leek. Reserve the tougher green tops for use in broths.
