Baked salmon makes a weeknight meal that is quick and easy enough for the busiest of nights, while being healthy and elegant enough for entertaining. This oven baked salmon with a Parmesan herb crust is out of this world delicious!
Preheat oven to 425º F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper which serves to keep the fish moist and make for easy cleanup.
Wash the salmon filet and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down, onto lined baking sheet. Cover salmon with another piece of parchment paper.
Bake salmon for 10 minutes. While it bakes, stir all remaining ingredients together in a small bowl.
Remove salmon from oven and discard top piece of parchment paper. Top the salmon with herb and cheese mixture. Return to oven uncovered and bake until the internal temp registers 135º F. The Parmesan cheese should be melted and golden brown.
Remove the fish and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
