This is my recipe for an extra flavorful, restaurant-style salmon filet. It's so easy, yet very impressive; perfect for that special occasion and special dinner guests. The salmon filets are topped with a combination of crunchy panko, parm, garlic, herbs and butter, then baked. A minute under the broiler to lightly brown, and they're done. So good!

How to Make SALMON WITH CRISPY HERB TOPPING

Step-by-Step

  • 1Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, dull side up. Grease foil with 1/2 T butter, set aside.
  • 2Place oven rack in middle position; preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 3In a medium size bowl, combine panko, cheese, parsley, chives, salts and pepper.
  • 4Melt 3 T butter in small bowl in microwave (about 20 seconds) or in small saucepan over medium heat.
  • 5Pour over panko mixture; mix well with fork or spoon.
  • 6Remove salmon from packaging (drain if necessary.) Place salmon on prepared baking sheet.
  • 7Use a spoon, or your impeccably clean fingers (as Julia Child would say) to evenly cover filets with panko mixture, pressing to help adhere to fish.
  • 8Bake at 400 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of fillets, then turn on broiler for 1 minute, to lightly brown. Shut off broiler and remove fish from oven immediately.
  • 9Serve hot. Cover and refrigerate leftovers as soon as possible. Gently reheat in toaster oven or in microwave at 50% power.
