  • 500 g salmon I used boneless side of salmon but you can also use salmon fillets
  • cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • cup panko breadcrumbs sub for regular or golden breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp dried parsley sub for fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp dried dill sub for fresh dill
  • 2 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste I used about ½tsp
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F
  • To a small mixing bowl, add freshly grated parmesan cheese, panko breadcrumbs, paprika, parsley, dill, salt and pepper, melted butter, and mix to combine. You will get a crumb-like texture.
  • Line a baking tray with aluminum foil, place the salmon on it, skin side down. Pat dry with a kitchen towel/paper.
  • Brush some oil on top of the salmon then sprinkle the breaded mixture evenly over the fish. Gently press into the fish.
  • Bake in the oven for 12 to 18 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. The internal temperature of cooked fish should register 145F/62F when tested with an instant-read thermometer.
    Serve and enjoy!



  • Bring the fish out about 15 minutes before cooking so it comes to room temperature. This will enable even cooking.
  • Use skinless salmon, ensure to spray the foil so that the fish does not stick on it.
  • Use leftover salmon to bulk up a salad for lunch
