Salmon is like chicken in our household, we have it at least once a week! And simple recipes like this Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon allows me to get dinner on the table with ease.
This Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon is a fun, new variation I have been doing lately. I love the crunch the panko crumbs add and it seriously only takes 5 minutes of prep and you just pop into the oven, making it the perfect weeknight meal! Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!
And if you need additional salmon ideas, one of my very favorite ways to enjoy salmon is this Cedar Plank Salmon recipe. Or have you tried my Green Curry Salmon Recipe? It is a favorite in our household (and on the blog, too) and it definitely shows how you can take regular old salmon and make a gourmet dish out of it.
Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon
- 18 oz. of salmon
- 2 tbsp. of dijon mustard or honey mustard
- 1/2 cup panko crumbs
- 1 tbsp. dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 4 tsp. olive oil
- kosher salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Set the salmon on a parchment paper-lined (you can also use foil) baking sheet skin side down.
- Brush the mustard over the top of the salmon until it is evenly coated. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, mix the panko with dried thyme, paprika, a little salt and pepper, and the 4 tsp. of olive oil. Toss to combine evenly.
- Rub and press the panko mixture all over the top of the salmon until it is evenly coated.
- Roast the salmon for 12-14 minutes, or until it is almost completely firm to the touch and flakes when poked with a fork. Serve immediately with desired sides.
