A serving platter with four garlic panko salmons.I just came from my yoga class and my body is sore… hahahha! It has been almost three weeks since practicing because I just wasn’t in a mood. Since I came back from Brazil, I wasn’t very excited to exercise, although I know it is really important and I shouldn’t have put it off. Now, that I am back to my yoga class I am feeling the consequences of not exercising daily. But that’s fine. This is not a big deal. Now that I am back, this soreness will soon disappear and I will enjoy more my classes.

I love my yoga instructor … she is a very sweet, kind, and wise woman. During the class, she is always saying things that make me feel calmer, more peaceful, and happier too. It is great when you have the privilege to reserve one hour of your day to take care of your body, mind, and soul. I really recommend yoga to everyone because the benefits are endless. Anyways, on my way back from yoga, I picked up more panko because I used up our last bit making this Roasted Green beans with Garlic Panko. And now with a ton on hand, I wanted to experiment with some salmon!

Salmon is one of my favourite fishes. I make it so often, like my Easy Salmon Salad Recipe, Salmon Chopped Salad Recipe, and Easy Chopped Salmon Salad.

Salmon is such a flavorful fish that even if we can eat raw, it tastes amazing. But it can taste even better when you cook with few special ingredients like garlic, mustard, and panko to get the crunchy aspect. The panko topping is really good. This salmon recipe is very simple with basic ingredients but results in 5-star quality salmon. This is a great, quick, easy, and healthy recipe that I will surely make again.
