Pan fry fresh salmon with a flavorful crispy potato coating. It tastes like it's deep fried but cooks in 1 tablespoon of oil.
Updated Feb 5, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 lb salmon, swordfish or arctic char fillets, 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup Betty Crocker™ mashed potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil

Steps

  • 1
    Remove and discard skin from fish. Cut fish into 4 serving pieces. Mix egg white and water with fork. Mix dry potatoes, cornstarch, paprika and lemon-pepper seasoning. Dip just the top sides of fish into egg white mixture, then press into potato mixture.
  • 2
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over high heat. Cook fish, potato sides down, in oil 3 minutes. Carefully turn fish, using wide slotted spatula. Reduce heat to medium. Cook about 3 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with fork.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Salmon is familiar to most of us, but artic char may be new to you. Arctic char is related to both trout and salmon and tastes like a combination of the two.
  • tip 2
    Carefully turn over frying fish so that it falls in the pan away from you. This will send any hot oil away from you instead of toward you.
  • tip 3
    Are you an herb lover? Add 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves to the potato mixture to make Basil Potato-Crusted Salmon.
