Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine mustard, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, rosemary, honey, salt and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Combine panko, walnuts and oil in another small bowl.

  • Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the mustard mixture over the fish and sprinkle with the panko mixture, pressing to adhere. Lightly coat with cooking spray.

  • Bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness.

  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

I love salmon almost any way you can make it but particularly enjoyed this flavor combination with lemon squeezed over the salmon before serving. The crunch from the topping was an added bonus. Will definitely make this again. Read More

I don't particularly like fish but this was quite good. Very easy to make - 10 minutes in the preheated oven was perfect. Followed the recipe pretty closely..except a little heavier with the dijon and garlic and I had no red pepper. It turned out very tasty and will definitely make it again. Read More

Delicious! Made as directed and family agreed it was a five-star meal. Next time I may squeeze some lemon juice over my plate for a little added lemon zing. Read More
