The holidays are coming and many of us are already thinking about what to prepare on Christmas Eve. So, to follow the tradition of having a ‘meatless’ dinner on the 24th of December, we recommend a very easy and tasty recipe featuring one of the most popular fish on Christmas tables: Salmon au gratin.

It is such a simple preparation that it is almost a non-recipe, but accompanied by a side dish of vegetables, it is truly worthy of the Christmas table and will win over even the youngest members of the family. Have a look at Ravioli with prawns and cherry tomatoes which could be perfect to complete your dinner.

Salmon au gratin

10.29g carbohydrates per 100g


  • 600g salmon in 4 slices
  • 100g breadcrumbs**
  • Parsley, extra virgin olive oil and salt as needed

**Ingredients specific for celiacs

*Ingredients whose labels must read “gluten-free” (or, in Italy, present on  Prontuario AIC)


  1. Place the breadcrumbs in a deep dish and mix with chopped parsley, salt and oil to form a sort of paste.
  2. Place the salmon slices on a baking tray covered with baking paper; cover with the aromatic breadcrumbs and press them down so that they stick well to the fish.


  1. Place in a static oven preheated to 200°C for about 10 minutes, so that the bread browns slightly.

Now serve and enjoy!
