  • 1.5 lbs raw salmon
  • 1/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp salted butter melted
  • 1/4 tsp salt for panko mixture, + more for sprinkling
  • black pepper for sprinkling
  • parsley chopped, optional


  • Pre heat oven to 425℉
  • Pat dry salmon, place on a baking dish lined with foil (foil should be greased slightly), sprinkle the top of salmon with salt and black pepper. If using skin-on salmon, place salmon skin side down.
  • Gather the sides of the foil and scrunch it up around the salmon to trap any liquid formed during baking.
  • In a bowl, bring together Panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, dill, and garlic powder. Mix to combine. Add melted butter, and mix again to combine.
  • Cover the top of salmon with Panko mixture.
  • Bake salmon for 12 minutes. Check to see if it is done. If using a meat thermometer, the thickest part of the salmon should be 145℉. If salmon is not done, bake it for a few more minutes. Avoid overcooking salmon.
  • Garnish with parsley (optional). Serve and enjoy!


If using salmon that is larger than 2 lbs, you might want to double the amount of the panko mixture.
