Today I am not going to say much about this dish. Ooey-gooey cheese lovingly wrapping each piece of salmon, topped with a crispity-crisp crust shown on the picture says everything you need to know about this Cheesy Parmesan Crusted Salmon Bake. I will just say that it’s incredibly delicious and is usually devoured with minutes.

It’s also great for parties, since you can prep this Salmon Bake before hand and just pop it in the oven for 15 minutes right before you’re ready to serve it. I probably wouldn’t put the Parmesan Panco topping on top until you’re ready to bake it, just to make sure that it comes out crispy, but you can definitely pre-mix everything for the topping ahead of time.

Enjoy!

    Hi, it looks so DELICIOUS and with salmon…My, oh my! But I was wondering, in your opinion how it would taste with white fish fillets like tilapia or Swaii

    • Hi Lenochka, thank you dear!
      I think it would work just as well with other fish, since I roast tilapia and swai the same way all the time (salt, pepper, garlic powder + olive oil/butter, lemon).
