Mustard-Crusted Panko Salmon

There's so much to love about this recipe for fast and flavorful mustard-crusted panko salmon. It boasts a simple coating baked to crunchy perfection, and is ready to eat in under 30 minutes - most of it hands-off time!


  • 1/4 cup whole-grain or Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tablespoons ground mustard
  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter melted, optional
  • 1.5 lb salmon either a large fillet or cut pieces


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C). Prepare a rimmed baking by sheet by lining with parchment, if desired, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the whole-grain and dry mustard, panko, and about half of the parsley; stir to combine.
  • Place salmon on the baking sheet. (If your salmon has the skin on it, be sure to place it skin-side down.) Brush the top lightly with melted butter, if using, then coat evenly with the mustard mixture.
  • Bake salmon for 15-18 minutes, until the fillets are just opaque and the topping is golden brown. (If using a thermometer, the recommended cooking temperature for salmon is 145 degrees F, 63 C). Sprinkle with additional parsley and serve.
