Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon Recipe: A Fabulous Fish Dinner in 20 Minutes by 30Seconds Food
We've read comments that some people are tired of salmon, but we find that hard to believe because of the popularity of all our salmon recipes. We think salmon is here to stay! Salmon is healthy, cooks quickly and can be prepared in so many different ways. This panko-crusted baked salmon recipe is moist and juicy on the inside, with a crunchy topping loaded with different flavors on the outside.
The simple salmon recipe has just a few ingredients: salmon, honey mustard, fresh thyme, panko breadcrumbs, olive oil, fresh flat-leaf parsley and smoked paprika. The honey mustard is mixed with a little thyme and spread on the salmon fillets. The panko is combined with more thyme, olive oil, parsley and smoked paprika, and piled on the salmon. Bake the fish for about 12 to 15 minutes and you're ready to sit down to a delicious dinner.
You could use dried thyme if you can't find fresh. If you don't have honey mustard, any mustard can be substituted. Just keep in mind that it will affect the flavor. Dijon, for example, would add a twang from the wine and a spicy brown mustard would add a bit of heat. Serve this baked fish with a fresh salad and whatever side dishes you enjoy.
