Parmesan Crusted Salmon & Broccoli {One Pan Recipe!} - Cooking Classy (1)

Parmesan Crusted Salmon Recipe

One thing I’ve been intrigued with lately is the idea of cooking a meal on a sheet pan. I haven’t even tried one pot pasta recipes yet, probably because I fear soggy noodles or something.

I don’t really understand how you can add traditional pasta noodles to cold water and then bring it to a boil and cook it with everything else and end up with noodles that have a great texture. I shouldn’t slam it until I try it though, and they usually look really good.

I’ve seen a few sheet pan dinners aroundand I love the idea of that! To throw everything on a sheet tray and bake it all together in the oven seems genius!

And in this Parmesan crusted salmon and broccoli recipe, the bakingsheetislinedin foil so clean up is a breeze.Once you try this simple baked salmon and broccoli you’ll be hooked!

You get perfectly golden, Parmesan and breadcrumb crusted salmon with a hint of lemon and herb flavor paired with the deliciousness ofcrisp tender roasted broccoli. I do love healthy dinners, and salmon and broccoli is as healthy as it gets.

I’m also all about less clean-up, so this meal is definitely my kind of dinner! What’s not to love? You can even use a resealablebag for the breadcrumb mixture for one less dish to clean.

Parmesan Crusted Salmon Ingredients

For the Parmesan salmon and broccoli, you’ll need:

  • Broccoli crowns
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • Skinless salmon fillets
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lemon juice
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Bread crumbs
  • Fresh parsley
  • Lemon zest
  • Dried thyme

How to Bake Salmon and Broccoli

  • Place broccoli on a foil-lined baking sheet in a mound.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread broccoli to edges of baking sheet.
  • Season salmon with salt and pepper, and place in center of baking tray.
  • Whisk together mayo, lemon juice and garlic and brush over salmon.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, lemon zest, thyme and olive oil. Sprinkle over salmon.
  • Bake until salmon is cooked and broccoli is crisp-tender.

How Long Should I Bake Salmon?

Unsure what the correct salmon bake time is? This recipe calls for you to bake salmon in a 400-degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes. You’ll know the salmon is done baking when it’s easy to flake with a fork.

Can I Use Frozen Broccoli in This Recipe?

While you can technically roast frozen broccoli, I don’t recommend using it in this recipe. Fresh broccoli is best for this baked salmon recipe!

Tips for the Best Parmesan Crusted Salmon

  • If you like your broccoli more browned and roasted, then let it roast for 5 minutes before spreading it to the edges and adding the salmon to the sheet pan.
  • For a more golden brown crust on your salmon, broil it the last 1 to 2 minutes it’s in the oven.
  • Serve this salmon with a lemon wedge for an extra pop of flavor.

Perfectly golden brown parmesan crusted salmon, with a hint of lemon and herb flavor paired with crisp and tender roasted broccoli all in an easy single pan.

Servings: 4 Servings

Prep5 minutes minutes

Cook20 minutes minutes

Ready in: 25 minutes minutes

Ingredients

Broccoli

Salmon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.

  • Place broccoli in a mound in center of baking sheet. Pour olive oil over broccoli along with garlic and toss to evenly coat.

  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and spread near edges of baking sheet, leaving enough space in center to fit salmon fillets.

  • Season bottom of salmon with salt and pepper and place salmon in center of baking sheet, leaving about 3/4-inch between fillets so they can evenly cook.

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice and garlic and brush about 1/2 Tbsp over each fillet. Season top with salt and pepper.

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together parmesan, bread crumbs, parsley, lemon zest and thyme, then drizzle 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil into bowl and stir with a fork until evenly moistened. Spread parmesan mixture evenly over tops of salmon fillets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until salmon fillets have cooked through, about 12 - 15 minutes (for a more golden crust you can broil during the last 1 - 2 minutes of baking if needed).

Notes

  • If you like your broccoli more browned and roasted, then let it roast for 5 minutes, then remove from oven and spread to edges before adding salmon to sheet pan. If you like it crisp-tender and slightly roasted, then no pre-roasting needed.
