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.
