  • Sheet Pan


  • 3 lb wild-caught salmon
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup crispy onions
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 whole lemon


  • Pre-heat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Over stove top in a skillet toast panko, crispy onions until they start to brown (3-4 minutes). Add grated parmesan cheese and toast for 1 minute.
  • Drizzle olive oil over salmon. Top with toasted onion parmesan crust and squeeze fresh lemon juice and lemon slices (optional).
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven, garnish with fresh herbs and serve.


NOTE: after testing this recipe a couple times I found that it was best not to add additional salt to the salmon as the parmesan cheese and crispy onions added plenty of sodium to the salmon.
