Ingredients needed…

This simple salmon calls for only 6 ingredients, but still packs a delicious punch of flavor! It’s a perfect, no hassle, easy, and tasty dinner recipe.

  • Salmon: You will need 2 skinless salmon filets for this simple dinner recipe!
  • Butter: Salted butter gives this salmon a delicious flavor and a crisp crust. Add 3 tbsp!
  • Panko Breadcrumbs: The base of this salmon crust is Panko breadcrumbs! This is my favorite breadcrumb to get that crispy, crunchy, golden look we all know and love! 1/3 cup is the perfect amount.
  • Parmesan Cheese: 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese adds incredible flavor to the salmon here!
  • Garlic Powder: Add 1 tsp of garlic powder, because garlic is always a must!
  • Fresh Parsley: Fresh parsley is the herb in this herb crusted salmon! It adds fresh and tasty flavor that you simply can’t get with dried herbs. Add 2 1/2 tbsp finely chopped parsley.
  • Salt & Pepper: Add as much salt & pepper to the crust mixture as you’d like. I recommend a lot for ultimate deliciousness!
