  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets, skinned (about 6 oz. each)
  • Steamed spinach (optional)


1. Coarsely crush KELLOGG'S CORN FLAKES cereal. In a small bowl, combine almonds, butter, basil, Parmesan, lemon peel, garlic, and pepper; stir in cereal. Rinse fish; pat dry. Measure thickness of fish. Place fish on the greased rack of a broiler pan. Spoon cereal mixture on top of fillets; pat gently to spread.

2. Bake at 400ºF for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily with a fork. For food safety, the internal temperature of the fish should be a minimum of 145ºF. Serve each piece of fish over steamed spinach, if desired.
