Sake no Potato Sarada Tsutsumiyaki - Baked Stuffed Salmon

Baked stuffed salmon (さけのポタトサラダ包み焼き) is an easy recipe to make and it can be a one dish meal in itself since each portion comes with a generous serving of potato salad to serve as the requisite carb. If you use store bought potato salad, you can even skip making your own. Just scoop out about 1 cup of salad per portion and it should come out fine.

  • 4 salmon fillets, 150 gram each
  • salt
  • pepper
  • butter
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • Potato Salad
  • 2 potatoes (about 300 gram), peeled
  • 1 carrot (about 150 gram), peeled
  • 1 cucumber (about 250 gram), peeled
  • 1 onion
  • 75 gram mayonnaise
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides and set aside for 20 minutes.
  2. Cut potatoes into 4 pieces, cut carrot into 2 halves. Boil until tender, and drain well. Cut potatoes and carrot into thin slices and set aside.
  3. Cut cucumber and onion into thin slices, sprinkle with salt, let stand 5 minutes, then squeeze lightly to remove excess moisture.
  4. Combine potatoes, carrot, cucumber, and onion. Add mayonnaise, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Preheat oven to 175 Celcius (350 Fahrenheit).
  6. Grease 4 sheets of aluminum foil with butter. Mound potato salad in the center of each sheet, top with salmon, then close up the foil to make neat packages.
  7. Bake the salmon and potato salad packages in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  8. Transfer the packages to serving plates, open the packages carefully, and serve with lemon wedges and cherry tomatoes.

    Interesting and super easy way to prepare salmon! I can imagine this also being a cool thing to try on a camping trip, especially if someone intends to go fishing.

    I'll admit, even though I'm eager for salmon recipes, I'd been putting this one off because... Well... I love potato salad, hahaha! I almost gave up once I made the potato salad from your recipe since I want to eat it as-is! I was out of cucumbers, but if I had one, I'm pretty sure I would have been completely unable to resist.

    Everything went without a hitch- my salmon still had the skin, so I just piled the potato salad on the foil, then plopped the salmon on it skin-side up. The cooked salad makes a nice creamy potato side without milk, and it was a good leftover as well. I'm tempted to try it with some heavy-duty foil over a wood fire! (If I ever try that, I'll certainly report on the experience)
