Crumb-Topped Salmon

Often we catch enough of our delicious Northwest salmon to send some to Michigan for my sister to enjoy. This crisp, lemony recipe is a tasty way to enjoy it. —Perlene Hoekema, Lynden, Washington
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)


  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a bowl, combine first 8 ingredients. Toss with melted butter.
  • Place salmon in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray, skin side down. Top with crumb mixture, patting gently. Bake until golden brown and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.

    Followed the recipe. Fish stayed moist. The herbed crumb crust is pretty tasteless. It was very fast and easy to make.

    This was really good, and pretty easy to make. I like to find new ways to make salmon and this is a keeper.

    Salmon is my husband's favorite fish. We have tried a lot of different salmon recipes and this is one of my favorite. It is really easy to fix. Since we try to avoid alot of fried foods this is a great recipe for us. Thanks for another great recipe.
