1 cup prepared pesto sauce 

1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs 

1 tablespoon lemon juice 

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 

Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

Stir together the pesto, breadcrumbs and lemon juice, set aside. Spray a baking sheet well with cooking spray. Season the salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper. Place the salmon skin side down on the cookie sheet. Divide the pesto mixture evenly between the 6 fillets. Smear the pesto mixture on top of the salmon.
