Parmesan- and Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon Recipe

Parmesan- and Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon Recipe - Oh. My. This is the BEST recipe for a busy weeknight. It's healthy. It's easy to make. It's delicious. |

October is National Seafood Month, so I thought I’d share the recipe for one of my favorite weekly dinner staples: Parmesan- and panko-crusted baked salmon (recipe originally posted on my Parade Magazine blog).

I had a fillet of salmon and wanted to try something different from my usual lemon-and-dill recipe.

This recipe is from Karen, my former manager at TASTE Unlimited. She’s a great cook and used to own a delicious restaurant for many years called Beckett’s Cafe, which I used to frequent. This baked salmon recipe she gave me is so good. It’s super easy and delicious.
