Lemon & Parmesan Crusted Salmon

This week, I'm sharing one of my favorite salmon recipes. It's a go-to for me because I get to have a restaurant-style meal in under 30 minutes! For this recipe, I'm using some of my favorite low-carb ingredients- pork panko and ghee.

The crust is super flavorful, thanks to the pork panko, lemon zest and dried thyme leaves. It pairs well with the salmon and provides a nice crunchy experience. This is a great recipe for our kitchen challenged savorers looking to grow their skills.


  • 2 salmon fillets

  • 2 tbsp ghee, melted

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 3/4 cup pork panko

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tbsp thinly sliced green onions

  • 2 tsp lemon peel SAVE $

  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray shallow baking pan with cooking spray. Pat salmon dry with paper towel. Place salmon, skin side down, in pan; brush with 1 tablespoon of the ghee. Sprinkle with black pepper and sea salt.

  2. Mix pork, cheese, onions, lemon peel and thyme in small bowl. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon ghee. Press bread crumb mixture evenly on salmon.

  3. Bake uncovered 15 to 25 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with fork. Serve immediately.
