Ready in minutes and easy to make, this baked salmon is tender, flaky, and flavourful.
1 (2-3 pound) salmon fillet, whole
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh dill, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
3/4 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Combine parsley, dill, garlic, panko, olive oil, Parmesan, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl then set aside.
Place the salmon skin-side down onto the lined baking sheet.
Brush the top of the salmon fillet with olive oil. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spoon the Parmesan-herb mixture over the top of the fillet. Press the mixture firmly onto fillet with the back of the spoon.
Place in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flaky, and the Parmesan crust is golden brown.
