Easy Oven Baked Salmon Recipe with Parmesan Herb Crust with only 6 ingredients! This tender flaky baked salmon recipe is topped with a crunchy herb crust.


  • 1 whole wild salmon fillet (1.5 – 2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs, finely chopped (I used thyme and chives)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Place the salmon fillet on the baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic, and herbs together. Drizzle the melted butter over the top and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mix with your hand to coat the breadcrumbs in butter.
  3. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the salmon fillet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through and the crust is golden. If the crust doesn’t brown, turn on the broiler for 1 minute, then remove. Serve warm.

    LOVE your discriminating children! With dishes like this, I’d be bringing home wild salmon every week, too :)

    That looks so amazing. Love how it flakes off perfectly.

    And !yes! to kids that grow out of the ‘gimme’ stage. It’s awesome when they instead learn to be helpers. My oldest two, ages 10 and 12 have become great assistants in my kitchen. And I love it!

    Have a great weekend Sommer!

    I am so looking forward to that day – grocery shopping right now is a nightmare. In fact, most of the time, I wait until the kids are in bed and I go by myself. This salmon looks AMAZING, though!

    It’s hard to cook such a beautiful piece of salmon… sometimes I just want to gnaw on the fillet. But, hey, if you’re going to cook it, I’d say this is a pretty fab recipe. :-)

    made this tonight and it was so easy and DE-LISH! It smelled soo good while cooking,  like at a restaurant! The only thing i did differently was omitted the thyme and used a mix of  plain bread crumbs and panko and then added two slices of lemon on top! Cant wait to make again! Thank you!

    Really good and I used frozen salmon filets so wasn’t expecting too much, but I will be making this often!!! Oh…I just realized I never put the parmesan cheese in with the crumbs (I used Panko) but it was still darn good…with the cheese I’m sure it will be a five star!!!

    This was a very nice recipe. I substituted almond flour for bread crumbs to make this lower in carbs.
