Prep Time Cook Time Servings
10 mins 20 mins 4


  • 4 6 oz salmon fillets, skin on
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs or fresh breadcrumbs

    step 1

    Preheat oven to 375°F.

    Spoon the breadcrumb mixture onto the fleshy side of the salmon and use the back of the spoon to spread the mixture evenly over the salmon, covering the entire surface area. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
