First of all you need to heat your oven to 350F for a fan oven or 380F for non fan oven.
Then you need to combine together in a blender or food processor the ingredients you chose and whiz it up, then stir in the lemon zest. If you do not have a blender then you can simply chop the parsley and garlic very finely by hand, it will take a little longer but it still works!
Lightly grease the pan.
Once you have your pan prepped add some salmon fillets and season with salt and pepper, spray with or brush with a little oil then firmly press the Gremolata crumb mixture on top.
If you want to roast the salmon on a sheet pan alongside some vegetables then you will need to choose some that will cook quickly in the oven such as cherry tomatoes, asparagus or chopped zucchini. Coat the vegetables in a little oil and add them to the pan around the salmon.
Now bake the salmon and vegetables in the oven for 15-20 mins until the fish is cooked through and the tops are slightly brown.
