Salmon or Arctic Char with Lemony Panko Coating

Jessica Braider
This tongue-tingling meal was inspired by a recipe that Scramble fan Jill Rabach sent me for salmon meatballs. I was running late so I decided to coat the salmon with the ingredients instead of chopping up the salmon and mixing it all together. We were delighted with the results.

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 lbs. salmon fillet (use wild Alaskan salmon, if possible) or Arctic char
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh flat leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced-fat mayonnaise (or use any variety),
  • 1 Tbsp. grainy Dijon mustard (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1/2 lemon juice only, about 2 Tbsp.
  • 3 Tbsp. panko bread crumbs (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed),


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line it with foil or a silicone mat, and lay the salmon on the baking sheet.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, and spread it evenly over the salmon. (If you have picky eaters, leave a small piece of the fish plain or season it with a little salt and lemon juice.)
  • Bake it for 10 – 15 minutes until it is just cooked through and flakes easily. Serve it immediately.


Do Ahead or Delegate: Chop the parsley, juice the lemon, combine the ingredients for the fish topping and refrigerate.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Add a bit of lemon zest to the topping for the fish.
Tip: While oranges seem to get most of the credit for containing vitamin C, all citrus contains healthy doses of this beneficial vitamin.  The juice from one medium lemon contains 25% of your vitamin C requirements.
