1/3cupgrated parmesan cheese
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.
