“As a Dad, if you talk about the food like you don’t like it, then they will automatically not like it…..and that’s how I raise my kids. So they eat everything I put on the table.”

A little-known fact about Tony however, is that he LOVES to cook - especially for his kids! On the MMK menu today? Tony’s very own recipe for Salmon Oscar; a quick, simple dinner of salmon and crab over angel hair pasta with a side of cheesy Parmesan Mushrooms.

Tony Huerta’s Salmon Oscar



2-3 salmon filets

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp lemon pepper

1 tsp oregano

1 tbsp olive oil

1 batch angel hair pasta

One large glass (8-10 oz) dry white wine

King crab, ½ cup per filet



1 lb white mushrooms

¼ cup (¼ stick) butter

Salt and pepper to taste

¾ cup parmesan cheese or more to taste




  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • cook the angel hair pasta.
  • At the same time, heat a large skillet with olive oil in it.
  • Season the salmon filets on both sides with the salt, pepper, oregano, and lemon pepper.
  • Sear the salmon on high heat on the non-skin side.
  • Turn over the filets so the skin side is down.
  • Add one large glass of wine and cover immediately.
  • Reduce heat to medium.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes or until the desired doneness is achieved. 
  • Shred the crab meat and place in the wine reduction just enough to warm it slightly.
  • Remove and strain the pasta and add a slight amount of olive oil to keep it from sticking.
  • Serve the pasta onto a plate, place the salmon on top, and pour the white wine reduction over both. Then add the crab meat on top.

Serve with cooked mushrooms and Enjoy!



  • In a skillet, put 1/4 stick of butter and warm over medium heat.
  • Add washed and cut mushrooms.
  • Add salt and pepper.
  • Add a generous amount of shredded fresh parmesan cheese, although pre-shredded parmesan works well.
  • Cook over medium -high heat for about 15 minutes. Do not stir. 
  • Let the cheese get crusty on the bottom of the pan.

Serve with Salmon Oscar
