  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place salmon in the center of the foil (skin side down if it has skin) and fold up all the sides snugly around the salmon. Push foiled salmon to one side of the pan.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons butter and the 4-6 minced garlic cloves to a medium bowl and microwave until butter is melted. Whisk in all remaining Lemon Butter Sauce ingredients and pour evenly all over salmon.
  4. Whisk together the Parmesan Panko Topping until butter is evenly absorbed. Pat Topping evenly all over salmon.
  5. Add broccoli to open space in pan next to salmon and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread broccoli out in a single layer next to the salmon.
  6. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes (depending salmon thickness), or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Broil approximately one minute or until panko is golden.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired and additional salt and pepper as needed.
