This easy salmon casserole recipe is in response to a request from a reader whose daughter had visited France and come back with fond memories of a dish fixed by her French host.

If you want to make this salmon casserole ahead of time, prepare the salmon and fish layers, then cover and refrigerate. Mix the crumble and refrigerate separately. Sprinkle the casserole with the crumble just before baking.
I've noticed a bit of a crumble mania going on with French home cooks these days. You'll find it on top of sweet dishes and of course fruit crumbles have always been popular, but these days it is starring in a lot of savory dishes as well. Crumbles are a quick way to add flavor and crunch to casserole dishes without a lot of effort.
This salmon casserole recipe gets a topping of flour, butter, fine bread crumbs (called chapelure), and parmesan cheese before it goes in the oven. The crumble insures that the salmon stays moist and flavorful.
