  • 2 (8-oz) salmon fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 6 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
  • 4 lemon slices
  • Chopped fresh parsley and lemon wedges for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel. Season them with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and place them on the prepared sheet pan.
  3. Mix the mayo, dill, and parsley in a small bowl. Spread the mayo mixture on top of the salmon fillets.
