Parmesan Crusted Salmon is the perfect baked salmon recipe for a nice dinner at home. This White Wine Dijon Salmon has a delicious creamy sauce and a crispy cheesy crust. Yum!

One of the most popular recipes on The Cookie Rookie is my Salmon with Avocado Salsa. I’ve been trying to top it ever since I made it back in 2013. I’ve made tons of easy salmon recipes, but so far, no luck…until now!

I’m not saying this Parmesan Crusted White Wine Dijon Salmon is better than the Salmon with Avocado, because they’re so so so very different (one is Whole 30 approved…and this one isn’t haha), but the flavors in this Parmesan Salmon are out of this world. It is definitely just as tasty in different ways.

This Parmesan Crusted Salmon may not be quite as healthy as the other recipe, but man it is SO GOOD! Lucky for us it’s super easy, sure to please the entire family, and incredibly full of flavor. And this white wine sauce for the salmon is SO GOOD! I could eat it with a spoon. You’ll agree once you try it!

This baked Parmesan Salmon recipe has a creamy white wine dijon sauce, and it is the perfect dinner to make for a night in!
