This Jewish holiday you can make lake crusted salmon for those who guests who don’t eat brisket!
The holidays were allways so much fun growing up! Mama Goldstein made the best Jewish comfort food. We would wake up to the smell and sizzle applause of the potato lakes frying. The brisket would be tucked into a warm blanket of veggies in the oven, applesauce ready to meet it BFF latkes, and pigs in a blanket would be lined up in rows on sheet pans. Every time I cook for the holidays now I try to bring the flavors of my childhood home in NJ to my apartment in NYC! I wanted to create a recipe that combined my moms latkes with a non meat holiday recipe. I though crusting salmon with latkes was the perfect way to go! It turns out amazing and I have some fun hacks to hep along the way
Tips For the Best Latkes:
- Use russet potatoes because they are heartier and have less water content so crisp up better.
- Grate 1/2 onion into the mix. My mom did this and it literally makes the latkes amazing.
- Squeeze out excess water from potatoes. Less water more crispy the latkes will be.
- I add cheddar cheese to bind the latkes instead of eggs.
- Make a giant sheet pan of latkes in the oven to same time and work: click here for recipe!

Step 1: Mix the Latke Ingredients
Step 2: Season the salmon with salt, pepper, lemon, and smear on Dijon mustard.
Step 3: Add the latke mix and bake 400 degrees 20 minutes and then 5 minutes on top rack.
Happy Cooking and hope this makes your dinner easier!
