Crushed Ryvita & Greek Yoghurt Topped Salmon

Crushed Ryvita & Greek Yoghurt Topped Salmon

This is one of my all time favourite oily-fish recipes; it’s salmon topped with Greek yoghurt & crushed rye crackers (with a sprinkle of heart healthy olive oil on top for good measure!). For heart health we should ideally  eat two portions of fish a week, one of which is oily (such as salmon or mackerel, sardines, pilchards, fresh tuna etc.).

It was my mum who actually introduced me to this recipe and I cannot thank her enough, in fact this recipe is a hit even with people who don’t really like fish!

You can even turn this recipe into a healthy fish and chip supper; In case you didn’t know, I live super close to what use to be the world famous original Harry Ramsden’s Fish & Chip Shop which was established back in 1928 in a wooden hut in Guiseley, West Yorkshire! It’s my personal taste of Britain on a plate!

    AMAZING IDEA!! I topped mine with Mediterranean ryvitta, spring onion and chives. It was messy but I covered the entire steak in the greek yog and rolled it into the crushed up stuff as opposed to topping it. It was LOVELY!!!

    Great variation for salmon. Ate with greens- beans, broccoli etc and roasted vine tomatoes. Delicious and a firm favourite in our house. Kids love it too. 🙂

    Accidentally bought smoked haddock so it was a bit over powering! Will try again soon and buy normal fish fillets! But otherwise it was tasty and really easy to make, great with couscous and green beans. 😀 xx

    I’ll be honest I’m not normally a salmon fan but I really wanted to try this and WOW I used sweet onion ryvita and LOVED it! I’ve even told mum to try it, thanks for a great recipe idea!

    I have always hated salmon but this photo looked so good I decided to try it for lunch today. Used the pumpkin seed and oat ryvitas and had it with quinoa salad and it was amazing. I have now found a way to enjoy salmon. Thank you!

    I made this for dinner tonight & I must say, it’s the best way I’ve had salmon ever! I used cracked black pepper Ryvita’s for it & mixed some fresh herbs into the Greek yogurt before spooning it on. So flavoursome! Served it with lime & coriander cous cous & a green salad with olives. Divine!

    Made this recipe for the second time last night but this time swapped the ryvita for crushed almonds. delicious and thankyou to Nic for the inspiration 🙂

      Oooh what a great tip! That would make this recipe gluten free too, thank you!!

    Delicious! One of the nicest things I’ve cooked for ages. The salmon I had was Sainsbury’s lightly smoked, which was on sale. I mixed some garlic and ginger paste into the yoghurt with some shredded cucumber, and topped it with crushed Finn crisps. Roasted tomatoes with it, and served it with green beans and spinach. I wish I’d taken a photo to show you.

    What substitute can I use for Greek yoghurt? I’m dairy free 🙁
