3 tablespoons olive oil 4 salmon filets 2 teaspoons kosher salt Zest of one lemon Black pepper 1/4 cup basil pesto 4 tbsp grated parmesan cheese 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs


Pat each salmon filet dry with a paper towel. Then, place the filet skin side down on the prepared baking sheet. Stir together the salt, pepper, and lemon zest and season the top of the salmon.


Spoon the pesto onto the filets, and spread it out evenly with a wooden spoon.


Mix the parmesan and breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the pesto. Then, drizzle the remaining olive oil over the tops.
