  4. Mix all spices, mayo, garlic, and parsley together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  5. Assemble the salmon bake by putting the salmon in an oven proof baking dish. Coat salmon with the mayo mixture and half of the grated cheese.
  6. Top with the panko mixture and the other half of the grated cheese.
  7. Bake uncovered for 5-6 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden in color. Then cover with tin foil and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Garnish with fresh parsley and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
