Salmon, the star of this dish, is renowned for its health benefits. Packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, it supports cardiovascular health and provides a boost to brain function. Additionally, salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein and essential nutrients like vitamin D and B vitamins. The herb and Panko crust not only adds a satisfying crunch but also contributes an array of aromatic herbs that are rich in antioxidants and essential minerals.

One of the standout features of this recipe is its convenience. With minimal prep work and virtually no complex cleanup, it’s the perfect choice for busy weeknights or when you want to impress guests without spending hours in the kitchen. The tray bake concept ensures that all the ingredients cook together, saving time and effort, and leaving you with little more than one tray to clean.

To further elevate this dish, a creamy Yoghurt Dill Dressing is the perfect accompaniment. The yoghurt provides a dose of probiotics for gut health, while dill and chives bring a refreshing herbaceousness to the overall flavour profile. A touch of lemon juice adds a zesty, citrusy kick, tying the entire meal together.

Enjoy the convenience and nourishment of this dish, as it leaves you with more time to savour the joys of dining and less time in the kitchen.

For the Salmon:

  • 4 fresh salmon fillets roughly 500 – 800g total
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley very finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoons of fresh basil leaves finely chopped, optional
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced

For the Vegetables:

  • 500 g of chat or baby potatoes washed and quartered
  • 1-2 bunch of asparagus trimmed
  • 1-2 bunch of broccolini
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to season

For the Yoghurt Dill Dressing:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yoghurt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F).
  • Place the chat potatoes on a large lined baking tray, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake them in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. You want to use a large tray for this, as you will be adding the salmon and other veg in to the same tray.
  • Meanwhile, season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Then brush the top of the salmon with the Dijon mustard.
  • In a small bowl, combine the Panko breadcrumbs, chopped parsley and basil, grated Parmesan, lemon zest, and minced garlic. Mix to evenly distribute the components.
  • After 20 minutes, the potatoes should be mostly cooked, push the potatoes to the edges and add the seasoned salmon fillets alongside the potatoes. Top the salmon fillets with the herb & panko mixture. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C (356°F) and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • After the 10 minutes, add the asparagus and broccolini. Drizzle with additional olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for a final 10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Keep a close watch as the broccolini and asparagus cook quickly!
  • While the tray bake is in the oven, prepare the Yoghurt Dill Dressing. In a bowl, mix together Greek yoghurt, salt, pepper, fresh dill, chives, and lemon juice. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
  • Once the tray bake is done, remove it from the oven and scatter your halved grape tomatoes over the top.
  • Enjoy your Herb and Panko Salmon Tray Bake with a side of delicious Yoghurt Dill Dressing!
