This recipe is an amazing recipe if you are having guests. It takes her average simple salmon and turns it into a delightful and tasty dish for everyone to enjoy. Here I take a whole salmon fillet and I half bake it In the oven and then I take the Panko mixture and I cover the file with it and then I finish the cooking. You end up with an amazing juicy fillet of salmon covered with a crispy crunchy topping. In the topping I add some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and chopped parsley. You can use this recipe when you’re having company and place it at the center of the table as a sharing dish and it’s unbelievable. If you’re not having company and you wanna make a small dish just for the family Then you can buy ready-made portions and cook them halfway and then coat them in the Panko And then you still have individual portions that are crusted. I really recommend this recipe because it’s extremely easy and extremely tasty. There’s so much you can do with salmon and it’s also very hard to dry it out as it’s a very fatty fish so it’s perfect for this kind of Panko recipe.I’ve once use this Panko crust on a Seabass as well and it comes out just as incredible so you can choose which fish you’d like to coat but I do recommend this salmon. Here I served it with a nice bulgur salad and some nice Dips such as tahini and a nice lemony salad on the side.Highly recommend you guys try this recipe I promise you it won’t let you down. Enjoy :-)

For the dish / panko crust

To bake
Heat your oven at 325°F place the whole fillet of salmon on a baking sheet season with olive oil salt and pepper and bake for 15 minutes. Take the salmon out of the oven and evenly caught with the Panko crust as seen in the video above. Placed back into the oven at the same temperature for 15 minutesOr until the Panko is nicely browned. And there you have it perfectly crusted Panko Salmon. You can choose to serve it as family style in the center of the table or you can then slice it into individual portions.
For the panko crust
medium size mixing bowl
2 cups panko
1 1/2 lemons squeezed into the panko
1/4 cup olive oil
salt to taste
mix all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl you want to make sure that the mixture is a little bit damp but not too wet. And that is the crust for the salmon. If you have added too much olive oil simply add a little bit more Panko to the mixture. Taste the mixture before you place it on the salmon because if you like it a little bit more tangy you can always add some more lemon juice or even I recommend some zest of lemon.
