Method
Panko Crusted Salmon

Step 01

Preheat oven to 200°C.
Step 02
In a bowl, mix panko, parsley, lemon zest, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Drizzle olive oil and stir until the crumbs are evenly coated. Set aside.
Step 03
Place salmon fillets skin side down. Generously brush the top of fillets with mustard and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Coat each salmon fillet with panko.
Step 04
Heat vegetable oil over medium heat, on a cast iron skillet or oven proof pan. Adding salmon fillets skin side down, sear for 4 minutes – without the skin turning brown.
Step 05
Transfer pan to hot oven for 5-7 minutes until salmon is cooked and panko is browned.
Step 06
Remove from oven and cover with aluminium foil, allowing it to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Step 07
Serve with lemon wedges.

Serve this with a side of glazed baby carrots and mashed potatoes for a balanced meal.
