I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Crispy Salmon
...in your mind.

Crispy Salmon

Serves - Mrs. Cooking Guy’s favorite salmon, ever. And the green onions really make the mashed potatoes - so don’t leave em out. Oh….Kylie & Luke - you need to try this!!!


  • 4 - 6 ounce salmon fillets
  • 4 tablespoons sesame chili oil - you can buy it together, or simply mix approximately 75% chili oil with 25% sesame
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1/3 cup finely diced green onions
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. On a plate, drizzle oil onto the salmon and season well with salt - let sit 15 minutes
  2. Combine the potatoes in a small pot with the green onions, stir well to mix, heat through and keep warm
  3. Preheat non-stick pan on the stove really well, until almost smoking and add salmon, face down
  4. Let cook 3-4 minutes (without moving) until cooked about 1/4 of the way through - you can watch the color change on the sides
  5. Flip the salmon over and continue to cook for another 2 minutes - the top will now be nicely browned and crispy
  6. Place a small scoop of the potatoes onto a place and top with the salmon
  7. Sprinkle with a few sesame seeds and serve
