Mix all ingredients except fish, margarine, and parsley.

Brush one side of fish with margarine, dip into crumb mixture. ( I like to do it on both sides)

    This is worth to be repeated. Thank you. It's just enough for the 3 of us. My hubby & daughter had a serving & a 1/2. I served it w/ mashed tatters & honey glazed carrots. Thank you. I save the rest of the dry ingredients in a sprinkle container & put in the fridge for future use. - 3/20/10

  • This tastes like a restaurant meal. I used panko bread crumbs and seasoned the salmon with a touch of garlic salt before putting the crumb topping on. I just spray the salmon and sprinkle on the topping; that way I can get a nice, generous crust of crumbs on top. - 2/27/12
