When I lived in Eugene, Oregon, our middle school was right across the street from a shopping plaza that housed Sundance Foods, Humble Bagel and Dari Mart. While the 7th and 8th graders were allowed to walk across the street at lunchtime, picking up loads of nickel candy from Dari Mart and bringing back chewy bagels smeared with gobs of cream cheese from Humble Bagel, the 5th and 6th graders were confined to campus. I’ll always remember it because I never made it to 7th grade at that school… At the end of my 6th grade year, my brother and I moved to New York with my mom… And my dreams of being able to walk over to the Humble Bagel and pick myself up a warm, toasted “everything” bagel with gobs of cream cheese were crushed. I never made it to the coveted 7th grade position at Roosevelt Middle School.

It’s the little things that really matter when you’re a kid, right? I mean, not being able to leave campus like those cool older kids crushed me.

So, to this day, the “everything” bagel still holds a special place in my heart.

Are you an “everything” bagel fan? You know the ones I’m talking about, right? Those bagels that are coated in all kinds of seeds – poppy seeds, sesame seeds, fennel seeds and caraway seeds, and have that unforgettable strong smell of onion and garlic. These are the bagels that you don’t want touching any other bagels in the bag… I mean, if you combine a blueberry bagel and an “everything” bagel in one bag, the blueberry bagel is just not edible anymore… Right?

Well, tonight I’m cooking up something different with that “everything” seasoning…

Everything Bagel Salmon

This “Everything” Crusted Salmon has all those traditional elements of the “everything” bagel – Poppy, sesame, fennel and caraway seeds together with some minced up dehydrated garlic coats the skinless side of our salmon filets. A quick sear in a cast iron skillet ensures that all those spices get nice and toasted. Once it gets nice and golden brown, the salmon is flipped over so that the skin side is down and it’s popped into a hot oven to finish cooking for about 8-10 minutes.

I like to serve this “Everything” Crusted Salmon alongside some rice, quinoa, or even just a simple arugula salad. Then all you need to add is wine (the best part)!

This flavorful salmon is begging to be paired with something light and refreshing but with a backbone strong enough to stand up to all the spices. Rosé fits the bill perfectly here.

Wine Pairing for Salmon with Everything Bagel Seasoning:

  • Rosé – A floral and fruity wine stands up to the spices in this dish wonderfully.

  1. You have me drooling over here! I LOVE everything spice so much that sometimes I just lick my finger and dip it in to taste it. Crusting salmon with it is GENIUS! And when you brought up living in Eugene, it reminded me of a favorite food memory I have from high school when we drove from WA down to Santa Cruz and stopped in Eugene for breakfast. I had the best hash browns of my life and have been on a mission to recreate them ever since. Loving this rose pairing too, awesome post!

    • Thanks so much Lindsay! I love Eugene, and I miss it quite a bit! Hopefully we will get down there for a lot of Duck’s Football games this year. I wonder where it was that you had those hash browns…?

  3. Hold up, I didn’t know you grew up in Eugene! I did too – though I went to Jefferson. I still love Humble Bagels, and I always get an “everything” one! I actually JUST picked up an everything bagel spice blend from Trader Joe’s and have been obsessed. I haven’t tried it on salmon yet, but you can bet I’m going to as soon as I get the chance!!!

  4. Are you kidding?! This is brilliant! I eat an “everything” bagel at least twice a week from POP Bagel in the US Bancorp tower downtown. I am definitely adding this to my week night menu for next week 🙂

  6. My husband is not a fan of salmon (?? I know) but the everything part sounds wonderful-do you think another white fish would work?
