Recipe: Caribbean Jerk Salmon

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 16-18 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 salmon fillet


  • 1 cup high-fiber cereal
  • 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning
  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets (with or without skin)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat it with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor or a plastic bag, crush the cereal to a crumb texture. Add the jerk seasoning and pulse the processor again, or shake the bag. Pour the cereal crumbs onto a plate.
  3. Season the salmon with the salt and pepper, then dredge the salmon in the cereal crumbs and shake off the excess. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and cook for 16-18 minutes.
  4. If the salmon was skin-on, simply wedge a straight spatula in between the skin and the flesh to loosen the salmon from the skin, and the skin will detach easily, staying on the baking sheet.
  5. Serve with optional rice or quinoa as a side.
