Salmon panko crusted with a side salad.

Baked Panko Crusted Salmon Recipe


EASY panko crusted salmon is a delish meal that the whole family will love. Layers of flavor and tender, flaky fish with a crunchy topping.


Units Scale
  • 4 6oz. salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • sea salt and black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Arrange salmon fillets skin-side down on baking dish or sheet pan (lined with foil for easy clean up) and season with a little salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and dijon in a small bowl and spread over salmon fillets.
  4. In another small bowl, mix together panko and olive oil with a fork and sprinkle over mustard mixture, spreading panko over the entire fish.
  5. Bake fish for about 15 minutes, until cooked through. If breadcrumbs aren’t golden brown, then broil  for 1-2 minutes, just until golden brown.


  • For a golden brown crust, carefully broil salmon under medium-high heat (watching the entire time!) for a crunchy texture and deeper color.
