Parmesan Pesto Baked Salmon

Parmesan Pesto Baked Salmon has a bright basil flavor with a crispy, golden crust. This quick and easy meal is ready in 20 minutes.


  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets pin bones removed

  • 6 tablespoons pesto

  • 1/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs

  • 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese grate with a Microplane grater if possible.


  • Preheat the oven to 325°. Place a piece of tin foil on a rimmed baking sheet. Lay the salmon fillets on the baking sheet, not touching. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons of pesto over each fillet and spread it with the back of a spoon or knife so that it's lightly coated with pesto.

  • In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese until evenly distributed. Top each of the salmon fillets with a coating of the breadcrumb mixture.

  • Cook the salmon for 12-15 minutes for medium. To get the crust a golden brown, turn the oven to broil and heat for 45 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes with the salmon about 5 inches away from the heating element. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.

  • Serve immediately.
