  • 2.5 pound salmon fillet skin on
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice plus more for topping
  • 2 cloves garlic minced to paste
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine mayo, lemon juice and garlic. In another bowl, combine breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and olive oil.

  2. Lay salmon skin side down on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Brush on mayo mixture, then sprinkle on parmesan and breadcrumb mixture. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until breadcrumb mixture is toasted and golden brown and salmon begins to flake. For best results, don't overcook salmon fillet.

  3. Finish salmon fillet with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of parsley. To serve, cut salmon into portions and gently lift off salmon skin.

Recipe Notes

To use salmon portions instead of fillet, decrease cooking time depending on size of portions.
