Lemon, Herb, and Parmesan Baked Salmon

Ingredients

  • 2lb salmon filet
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lemon (for zest and juice)

Spread

  • 1/4 cup fresh parmesan, grated
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 teaspoons zest from the half lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, mined

Topping

  • 1/4 cup fresh parmesan, grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon on the lined sheet and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the spread ingredients (parm, mayo, lemon zest, and garlic) and spread over the top of the salmon.
  4. In another small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients (parm, herbs, and butter) and sprinkle over the top of the salmon, then squeeze the fresh lemon juice over the fish.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness of the fish (internal temp should be 125-130 degrees to avoid overcooking). Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
