What kind of salmon should I use to make oven-baked salmon?

Any type of boneless salmon fillet works for this recipe, however, if you’re looking for sustainable harvested high quality salmon, try looking for wild caught Pacific or Alaskan salmon.

Do you recommend skin or skinless salmon fillets?

You can use either skin or skinless salmon fillets for this recipe. If you prefer skinless, you can always fillet the skin off with a knife and cutting board.

Are there other cheeses that go well with oven-baked salmon?

You can use cheeses similar to parmesan such as Pecorino or Granan Padano. If you’re looking for a melting cheese crust, I would recommend Mozzarella or even a Cheddar blend.
