Crusted salmon recipes are a dime a dozen, but this one is a little different: Toasting the panko mixture while the salmon bakes keeps the topping extra crunchy. It also lets you add as little or as much as you like.

Sesame Mustard Sauce:


Sesame Mustard Sauce: In bowl, whisk together mustard, maple syrup and sesame oil.

Salmon: Place fish on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; brush with 4 tsp of the Sesame Mustard Sauce.

Bake in 425°F oven until fish flakes easily when tested, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add bread crumbs and sesame seeds (if using); cook, stirring constantly, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Top fish with bread crumb mixture. Sprinkle with chives (if using); drizzle with remaining Sesame Mustard Sauce. Serve with rice.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: For a low-carb dinner, serve this salmon on a bed of stir-fried vegetables, such as zucchini, sweet peppers, onion, shaved carrot, bok choy and broccoli.
