Panko Encrusted Salmon



I have a confession to make.  I'm not wild about eating or preparing fish.  Yes, I know it's good for you and all that.  I do enjoy shellfish, though.  In fact I love it.  But, fish, not so much.  Our son loves deep sea fishing.  When he gifts us part of his catch, I really enjoy it, especially if he prepares it.  Fresh fish can't be beat, but it's difficult to obtain.  Grayden loves fish.  Often when we eat out he orders fish, particularly salmon.  I've tried making it several times and it's okay.  Recently I prepared salmon that was delicious to me and even Samuel who like me is not wild about fish.

I bought Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon from BJ's.  It's individually wrapped so that helps me some with the ick factor.

It you want to give it a try here is what you'll need for 3 to 4 salmon fillets:


  • 1/2 cup or so of Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon of dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
Mix together all of the above ingredients in a bowl. 
  • Brush 1 to 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard on the skinless side of each fillet
  • Press the breadcrumb mixture onto the Dijon mustard of each salmon  fillet

Heat your oven to 425 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in an oven safe 12 inch skillet on medium high.  Add your salmon skin side down and cook for 4 to 5 minutes without turning.  
Transfer your skillet to your preheated oven and let them cook for 3 or 4 minutes until the Panko is browned.
Remove from oven and allow to rest covered for a couple of minutes.  Enjoy!

  1. It looks good! I am not wild (ha!) about cooking fish either. I like it in the shell and served at restaurant.

  2. Ellen, this looks delicious, we eat salmon quite often, and I am always looking for new recipes. We usually eat our other fish and shellfish in our favorite restaurant in the country, usually on Friday or Saturday nights. The broccoli and new potato are also favs. of mine! Thank you for sharing.
    Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comment.

  6. I’m like you...not a fan of preparing fish at home. I can handle a fish chowder, but that’s the outer limits. I’d order this at a restaurant, though. It sounds delicious.

  7. I am so silly! I looked at the plate of delicious looking food and asked myself, "where's the salmon?" ~ how silly of me! It looks wonderful, and I'm happy you have a fish recipe you like.

  9. I also am not fond of fish. Dan is the same way as Grayden- he loves it and frequently orders it at restaurants. I completely dislike the smell of it too! This looks like a good recipe and I know salmon has healthy benefits.

    1. This was a very easy, Liz. This salmon does not have that aroma often associated with fish. I think you and Dan would enjoy it. ♥

  10. We have never been big fish eaters, although we have learned to love tilapia in recent years. We have also recently found some already seasoned salmon at Sam's Club that we like. Time to branch out, and this recipe looks like a good start! Thanks you for the recommendation!

    1. Cheryl, I'm always trying to find new ways to vary our diet and fish has been a big stumbling block for me to prepare. I think your family would enjoy this dish. ♥

  11. Martha Ellen, I'm not a fish lover either, but I do like lobster, prawns, and even crab. However, this salmon you prepared with the breadcrumbs looks pretty good. And a meal always tastes better with potatoes and broccoli. How exciting that your son loves deep sea fishing. My brother-in-laws used to work on crab boats in Alaska, and that's how I began a liking for it. This sounds like a tasty recipe, Martha Ellen.

  12. Looks good but I actually just like salmon heavily seasoned with herbs and sautéed in olive oil. Yum!

  13. Hi Martha Ellen,
    Now I just might have to try this. It looks delicious. There are only a few fish I enjoy, and this one looks good. Thank you for sharing.
    And thank you so much for your visit and kind words about Jane. I am so happy you enjoyed.

  14. I love salmon and this is similar to a recipe I use though I usually do it all in the oven. Maybe I should try this, variety is good for us, right?

    1. Yes, it is Dotsie. I do try to vary what we eat and try not to get into a rut! But, that happens around here when we're busy. Have a great week. ♥

  15. I'm the same. I love shell fish but would rather have fish at a restaurant than make it at home. Your salmon looks delicious, though. I've recently made fish fingers out of salmon but yours looks nicer, I'll give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

  16. That sounds wonderful. I haven't made salmon for a few years, and that was grilled in the summertime. I love it. I just need to remember to buy it. :-)
