  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon wild caught or farm raised, with skin on or off
  • 1/4 cup salted butter melted
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced, about 1/2-1 tablespoon
  • 3/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Unwrap salmon and press with paper towels to dry. Place onto baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, stir melted butter together with minced garlic, breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. It should look like damp sand.
  • Spread crumbs over salmon and press an even layer overtop the entire filet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until fully cooked. (Thicker pieces of salmon will take longer.)
  • Cool slightly, cut into pieces and serve.
