<strong>Lemon & Panko-Crusted Salmon</strong>

Lemon & Panko-Crusted Salmon

Another thing that Lyn wanted to try and I’m glad she did.

Mayonnaise helps the dill-infused panko crust stick to salmon fillets in this ultra-quick recipe. A squeeze of lemon along with the mayo adds tanginess to the crispy crust.

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

  • ⅓ cup panko breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat
  • Zest of 1 lemon, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 ¼ pounds center-cut salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise

Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Step 2 Combine panko, lemon zest, dill, oil and garlic powder in a small bowl. Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and pepper, then spread each portion with 1 teaspoon mayonnaise. Divide the panko mixture among the portions, pressing it into the mayonnaise.
  • Step 3 Bake until the fish is opaque in the center, 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
