Panko-Crusted Wild Salmon with Yogurt Sauce

A crunchy coating is perfect alongside the moist and tender flesh of the fish.


Mix the coating ingredients together, and spread evenly over tops of fillets. This creamy mixture keeps the fish moist as it cooks.


Press the panko mixture into the creamy topping. This will give the fish a lovely crunch.

      The main ingredients in the ones I use (Kinnikinnick) are: tapioca, pea, white rice flour, sugar, egg powder, and xanthan gum.

    Is there a specific gluten free Panko or is standard okay. I am BRAND NEW to all of this.

      The only brand of Panko brand I use is Kinnickinnick. There could be others out there, but my local grocery store only carries that one so that’s all I’m familiar with. But any other gluten free brand should taste very similar, so feel free to use whatever you find – but make sure it says Panko and not just breadcrumbs. Panko crumbs are much larger, crunchier and lighter in texture, which makes them the perfect coating.
