This is one of my standard salmon dishes that I regularly cook for my family. While the fish finishes in the oven I can prepare the sides, usually rice and salad.

  • Drizzle lemon juice over salmon fillets.

  • Combine bread, garlic, mint, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and cayenne in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place salmon fillets, skin-side up, in the hot skillet and cook until edges are opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip fillets and transfer to a baking dish, skin-side down. Press bread mixture over fillets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until salmon can be easily flaked with a fork and the crust is browned, 15 to 20 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

If the salmon fillets are very thick, they might take longer in the oven. In that case cover with aluminum foil, so the crust does not burn.
