1 pound Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon, cut into 4 fillets

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 cups salt & vinegar potato chips (or flavor of choice), roughly crushed

Chopped chives and lemon wedges, for serving


Preheat oven to 400 F. Place the fillets on a greased baking sheet. Season each with salt and pepper. Spread ½ tablespoon of mayonnaise evenly on top of each fillet. Place a handful of crushed potato chips on top of the mayonnaise, pressing down gently to adhere the chips to the fillet.

Garnish the salmon with chopped chives and serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Suggested side dish: green salad with a simple vinaigrette dressing
