Flaky salmon fillets topped with a crunchy, golden brown parmesan and panko crust are fancy enough to serve at a dinner party, but come together fast enough to enjoy for a weeknight dinner.

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets (Atlantic, 5 oz each)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 ounce grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 ounce fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 lemon (for serving)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Rinse the salmon filets under cool water. Gently pat them dry with paper towels, then place on the baking sheet, skin side down.
  4. Sprinkle the top of the salmon with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  5. Using a sharp knife, finely mince the fresh herbs. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  6. Add the Parmesan, fresh breadcrumbs, garlic powder, ¼ tsp. salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix with a fork to combine.
  7. Place the butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30-40 seconds until melted.
  8. Pour the butter over the Parmesan and herb mixture. Mix with a fork until the crumbs are evenly moistened.
  9. Using a spoon and clean hands, divide the Parmesan and herb mixture equally between each salmon filet. Gently pat it into even layers over the tops of the filets.
  10. Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven.
  11. Bake the filets for 12-15 minutes on the middle rack of the oven, until the crust is golden brown and the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  12. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  13. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the filets. Plate and serve immediately.

Looks good! Hope it tastes the same!
Quite simple but very delicious. We used tilapia instead of salmon and it turned out great.
Adding a mixture of roasted veggies and rice, makes a great meal! I have some leftover for this week!
Nice simple recipe. I might like to add crushed macadamia nuts for some crunch next time.
