Dijon and Panko-Crusted Salmon

Dijon and Panko-Crusted Salmon

My husband dropped my son off at a buddies house yesterday for a sleepover and came home with a large fillet of freshly caught king salmon.  Thank you so much for the beautiful fish Gery, Amy, Gavin, and Jason!  I decided to try something new instead of my usual Salmon with Garlic, Lemon, and Dill.  I found a delicious looking recipe by Ina Garten that looked too good to resist and I had all the ingredients on hand – you can’t beat that!  Instead of cutting the fish into 4 even pieces, I just cooked it a little longer and left it whole.  The Dijon gave the fish a wonderful flavor and the panko gave it a great texture.  It was perfectly cooked, tender, and absolutely fantastic!  My kids loved it, especially with lemon juice squeezed on top.  We gobbled up every last bite of this salmon. Freshly caught fish is the BEST!

Dijon and Panko-Crusted Salmon

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Combine the panko crumbs with the parsley, lemon zest, minced garlic, olive oil, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Combine with your fingers until evenly mixed.

Spoon the Dijon mustard on top of the salmon and spread evenly.  Season the fish with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper.  Press the panko mixture thickly on to of the mustard… the mustard will help the panko adhere.

Heat the vegetable oil in a OVEN PROOF skillet or Dutch oven.  When the oil is very hot, add the salmon fillet, skin side down, and sear for 3-4 minutes, without turning, to brown the skin.

Transfer the pan to the hot oven for 15-20 minute or until an internal temperature of the thickest part of the salmon reads 125-130 degrees.  Remove from the oven and cover with a tin foil tent for 5-10 minutes.  Serve the salmon hot or at room temperature with lemon wedges.  Enjoy.

    What a great friend to give you fresh caught salmon! I have made this recipe many times, and it’s delicious!

    Congrats to Ian on winning the Blendtec blender. I’m jealous, though! 😉

  6. Congrats to Ina for the awesome giveaway win!!!
    And I’m loving this fish.. I’ve done something very similar with tilapia… this topping would be good on just about anything!!!

  7. yes
    dijon and salmon go so well together don’t they?
    love that you added a nice crunch to it–good thinking!

  8. GORGEOUS! oh how i love salmon, this looks incredible.

  9. This is a great looking recipe and I am planning on making this tomorrow. One thing that puzzles me is the cooking time. You advise to cook the salmon at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes however the original recipe from Ina Garten instructs the following ” Transfer the pan to the hot oven for 5 to 7 minutes ”

    Quite a difference that an extra 10 minutes can make to the salmon. I am going with the 5-7 minutes. You may want to double check your timing. Thanks

  10. It looks like an amazing recipe ever i have seen till now!! Thanks for such great recipe post!!
