Don't get super excited that I am adding a probably isn't the start of something.  I truly made this last night and of ALL the hundreds of salmon recipes I have tried...this tops them all!!!


Preheat over to 400 degrees

1 lb salmon fillet
2/3 cups panko breadcrumbs
1-1/2 tbl lemon zest
1 tbl fresh grated ginger
1/4 tsp herbs de provence
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbl olive oil

2 tbl Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to season
canola oil
lemon garnish

Combine panko, lemon zest, ginger, herbs de provence, salt, pepper and olive oil in a bowl.  Season the salmon with salt and pepper and spread the mustard on top in an even layer.  Spoon the panko mixture on top of the salmon.

In a saute pan at medium high heat,  add 2 tbl canola oil and add salmon skin side down.  Sear for about 3-4 minutes until skin is crispy.  Place saute pan directly into the over for 5-7 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fish) then turn the oven on low broil to crisp up the panko.  Carefully watch the broiling step so the panko doesn't burn.  I served this with sautéed zucchini and tomatoes.

Remove and serve with lemon!!!
