Oven Roasted Salmon with Panko Crust

Looking for a quick and easy recipe for salmon? Here it is! This recipe only requires 4 ingredients and is a quick option if you're pressed for time on a weeknight.  It's also on the healthier side, so is perfect for those days when you're looking to eat light.  I seasoned the salmon with Cajun seasoning, but you can easily substitute this with some salt, pepper and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.  It gives the fish a nice hint of heat.

Serve it with some rice and sauteed spinach with garlic for a complete dinner. And voila, you're done!  Check it out...

Oven Roasted Salmon with Panko Crust

Prep time: 5 minutes
Baking time: 15 to 18 minutes

3 to 4 6 oz. Salmon filets
Cajun seasoning
1 cup Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
Pam Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pat the salmon filets dry and rub with Cajun seasoning.  (If you don't have this on hand, you can easily just use salt and pepper with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper).

Press panko onto the salmon filets.  Give a really quick and light spray of Pam Cooking Spray over the salmon.  You only need a little, just enough to help the panko crust a bit.

Very quickly spray some Pam over the salmon!
Place salmon on an aluminum lined tray and bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes.  The fish is done when it flakes with a fork and is opaque on the inside.

Lookie at that pretty crust!

Serve with a side of sauteed spinach and rice!

Dinner's ready! Oven roasted salmon with spinach and rice :)
