Panko and Parmesan Crusted Salmon

This is one of my favorite recipes. I probably make this once a week because it’s so easy and taste delicious. This recipe is perfect to make during the week for a quick dinner and impressive enough to make for something special. This would be great to make for upcoming Valentine’s Day if your pressed for time or not the best cook. It is no way you can mess this dish up, so give it a try!

  1. Every other recipe I have seen simply bakes the fish on parchment paper. But yours sears the skin first to make it crispy! Excellent idea!
