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!

Made it for my boss. Running as dinner feature on mother’s day
I’m so happy to hear you loved it, Pete!
Such a great recipe. I’ve made it many times, it never fails. Tonight, I left the bouillon out of the sauce and it was fine. This is a go-to recipe for me, I just love it – thank you!
Thanks so much for sharing, Marilyn!!
Can this be made in the air fryer? My oven broke so using the air fryer for everything lol
You could air fry the salmon at 380°F for 8-10 minutes!
Thank you so much!
All I can say is Delicious. Even the kids who don’t like Salmon loves this recipe. Will continue to bake this often.
So glad it was a hit, Tracy!
We have served this twice now in our house and the recipe is delicious, even the kids who can be fussy, love it!
Super easy and the whole family loved it! Even my two young daughters.
It’s a win when the whole family loves it!
Love this recipe. Simple enough for a weeknight dinner, elegant enough for a dinner party. Crispy crust, decadent, flavorful sauce – so good. Thank you!
Wow, that looks like it was professionally made, Marilyn!
Our favorite go to recipe for salmon. Everyone begs me to make it! 😍
That’s the best type of success!
Made this using chicken broth in place of the wine. I felt the mustard flavor was a little overpowering, so I’d definitely use next time. Overall, very good and would make again. The family really enjoyed it!
Thanks for sharing, Michelle!
