Greek cuisine-inspired, baked Mediterranean crusted salmon, is coated with feta cheese, panko bread crumbs, and dried herbs. A perfect weeknight dinner that will only take 30 minutes to bake.
I have a tradition that on every trip, I must buy a cookbook of the traditional foods of each country.
I think that it would be a good idea to write a post listing those books, let me know what you think in the comments.
Either way, I was taking a look at the one from Greece and started reviewing it and ended up sketching this recipe, baked feta-crusted salmon. Inspired by all the herbs and feta cheese used in the Greek dishes.

📝 How to make the recipe? - Step by Step
Start by preheating your oven to 350ºF, and now let's continue the preparation.
To prepare our feta crusted salmon will be julienne 1/4 of a small red onion. Season your salmon fillet with salt and black pepper, and place it on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
For the crust, mix the feta cheese, oregano, dill, panko, garlic, and olive oil. The mixture of the olive oil and the panko will result in a crunchy crust.
Now, press the crust mixture on top of the salmon fillet. Place the red onion on top of the crust. Next, bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque and flakes off easily.
Once done, remove from the oven, and serve immediately. I recommend eating this one right away, so you just taste all those flavors and the crunchiness of the crust.
As a result, a delicious and crunchy, Mediterranean crusted salmon. that you will want to make all the time. An easy and quick recipe to enjoy for lunch or dinner when you don't have that much time to cook.
✅ Recipe Tips and FAQ
Storing: You can store these in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 days. I recommend eating it once it's done cooking, so you can taste the crunchiness of the crust.
Reheat: If you have an air fryer you can pop it in for a couple of minutes.
You can serve this salmon with:
- roasted veggies
- green salad
- roasted potatoes
- cauliflower rice or white rice if you prefer
To tell if the baked salmon is done you must see a change in color from a translucent color to an opaque pinkish color. It also should flake off easily if you flake it with a fork or knife.
You can use frozen salmon, but you'll need to fully thaw it before baking. Also, pat it dry to remove any remaining liquid.
