  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and set the oven rack in the middle position. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Dry the salmon fillets with paper towel. Arrange on the baking sheet and season with ¼ teaspoons salt and the ground pepper.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley and thyme.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the breadcrumbs. With your fingers or a fork, toss to coat the breadcrumbs with the oil.
  • Pile the breadcrumb mixture on top of the salmon fillets, pressing gently to secure.
  • Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. This will vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. Take care not to overcook the salmon.
