  • 4 Atlantic salmon filets (5 oz each)
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 Tbs. fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbs. fresh dill
  • 1 Tbs. fresh chives
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tbs. (28g) unsalted butter
  • 1oz. (1/3 cup) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1oz. (1/4 cup) fresh breadcrumbs
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ a lemon, for serving

3. Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  8. Using a spoon and clean hands, divide the Parmesan and herb mixture equally between each salmon fillet. Gently pat into an even layer over the tops of the fillets.
  9. Bake the salmon on middle rack of oven until the crust is golden brown and salmon flakes easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes.
  10. Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven.
  11. Bake the filets for 12-15 minutes on the middle rack of the oven, until the crust is golden brown and the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  12. Check to see that salmon is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.
  13. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over salmon if desired. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
