Salmon fillet topped with a tasty Gruyere cheese crust. Absolutely my favorite oven-baked salmon recipe. Serve on rice with salsa on the side.

4 fillets


  • cooking spray (such as Pam®)

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Gruyere cheese

  • cup dry bread crumbs

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • ½ medium lemon, zested and juiced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 4 (8 ounce) fillets sockeye salmon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet lightly with cooking spray.

  2. Stir Gruyere, bread crumbs, melted butter, parsley, lemon zest and juice, and garlic together in a bowl.

  3. Place fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Divide bread crumb mixture into 4 portions and press into the top of the fillets to form a crust.

  4. Bake in the center of the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until crust is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Emmentaler cheese can be used in place of Gruyere.
