Baked Everything Bagel Salmon

Since I first began blogging about food, I have enjoyed following one blogger named Alyssa over at Constructive Deconstruction. Many of her posts are deconstructed dishes recreated in the most amazing ways. I was constantly in awe of her ideas and got inspiration from her from day to day. I always tried to think of ways that I could deconstruct something, but it just never really clicked in my head; until this. I am sure I am not the first to think of this because this is such a simple deconstruction, but I am excited about it because I have never really been good at them.

This recipe a like a deconstructed salmon lox everything bagel. Instead of the bagel, I used panko and the everything bagel seasonings to coat a filet of salmon. In order to really get the mix to stick, I coated the salmon in a cream cheese spread. I realized after eating the dish that I am not a huge fan of everything bagel seeds haha, but besides that the flavors were delicious. You almost feel like you are eating a salmon lox everything bagel, but with extra fish which makes it less dry than a bagel.

  • 4 skinless salmon filets

  6. A deconstruction is when you take a recipe and analyze the ingredients, then recreate a new recipe using those ingredients. Here is deconstructed an everything bagel with salmon lox. Does that make sense? It is really exciting trying to deconstruct things, I think it helps trigger your culinary creativity =)
