  • 2 lb salmon fillets
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove grated or pressed
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • 3 tbsp butter melted


  • Combine 3 Tbsp of mayonnaise, 3 Tbsp sour cream, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, and 1 pressed garlic clove in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Season both sides of the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Then transfer the fish to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil.
  • Spread the mayonnaise mixture on top of each fillet.
  • In a separate bowl, use a fork to combine 1 cup of panko bread crumbs, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 Tbsp dried dill, and 3 Tbsp melted butter.
  • Evenly spread the bread crumb mixture over the mayonnaise on each salmon fillet. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillet. Always make sure that your salmon reaches an internal temperature of at leasrt 145 degrees Fahrenhiet.


  • Serving a crowd- This can be made with a whole salmon fillet instead of small fillet cuts. The bake time will be longer though.
  • Make-ahead- the mayonnaise mixture can be slathered on hours before topping with the crust and baking.
  • Bake time- If the salmon is cold out of the fridge, it may take longer to bake.
