Panko Crusted Salmon – Tasty and tender

Published on February 8, 2011 | Fish

Panko crusted salmon. First of all we do love fish, particularly salmon, therefore any new way to prepare it is always welcome. Panko is a great Japanese bread crumbs. Either grinded fine or left as it is, it’s rather fantastic for binding food together.

Consequently used with this recipe it helped the mustard, lemon zest and parsley adhere to each other. As a result a great crust on top tp a perfectly cooked salmon.  Most of all, do not forget to squeeze some lemon on top of it. It will bring out all the flavors together.

A great dish for  your family or to impress your special person in your life.


Tonight’s February 8, 2011 dinner:

Panko Crusted Salmon

Peas with butter



2/3 cup panko

2 tablespoons minced parsley

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 6 oz. skinless salmon fillets

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons olive oil

Lemon wedges

Preheat the oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mix together the panko, parsley, lemon zest and ½ teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Add the 2 tablespoons olive oil and mix well until the crumbs are evenly coated.

Place the salmon fillets on a board and brush the Dijon mustard evenly on the top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Press the panko mixture thickly on top of the mustard on each salmon fillet. The mustard will keep the panko from sliding off.

Heat the 2 remaining tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat in a large 12 inch cast iron skillet or large ovenproof skillet. When the oil is very hot add the salmon fillets, panko mixture up, and sear for 3 to 4 minutes. Do not turn and transfer the pan to the hot oven for 5 to 7 minutes until the salmon is almost cooked and the panko is browned.

Remove from the oven and cover allowing resting for 5 or so minutes. Serve with the lemon wedges.
