Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon

Salmon is like chicken in our household, we have it at least once a week! My very favorite way to enjoy salmon is this Cedar Plank Salmon recipe; however, I love to change things up when I cook with salmon and get creative with it. For example, have you tried my Green Curry Salmon Recipe? It is a favorite in our household (and on the blog, too) and it definitely shows how you can take regular old salmon and make a gourmet dish out of it. 

This Panko-Crusted Baked Salmon is another fun, new variation I have been doing lately. I love the crunch the panko crumbs add and it seriously only takes 5 minutes of prep and you just pop into the oven, making it the perfect weeknight meal! Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!
