A simple topping of breadcrumbs, herbs, lemon and olive oil is the perfect way to dress up salmon for a quick, nutritious weeknight meal.
- ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 1 clove garlic, minced or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 ½ tablespoons chopped parsley
- ¾ teaspoon dried oregano
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each)
- Lemon wedges for serving
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, parsley, oregano, lemon zest, ¼ teaspoon salt and olive oil together in a bowl.
Place the salmon fillets on a greased baking sheet or in an oven-safe skillet (cast-iron works well). Season them with salt and pepper. Spoon the topping evenly on top.
Bake in the oven 10-12 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Squeeze a generous amount of lemon juice on top before serving.
