Herb Crusted Baked Salmon

If you want a quick and easy meal that also makes you look like a rock star in the kitchen you need to try my Herb Crusted Baked Salmon.

Baked Salmon

You can have this meal done in less than 30 minutes – REALLY! There aren’t many ingredients, so use the best quality you can find. Once you lay out the salmon on a baking sheet, coat it with Dijon mustard. Then, simply spread the spice and panko mixtures over the fish and bake for about 15 minutes. That’s IT!

While the fish bakes, you can work on the side dish. I served it with steamed green beans, but you can use any vegetable or side dish you like. Mashed potatoes would be awesome with the salmon.

I hope you’ll try this dish and let me know what you think!
