20 Minute Lemon, Garlic, and Herb Baked Cod

1 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs (regular panko or plain breadcrumbs will work in a pinch)

3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 -3 garlic cloves, grated or finely minced
1 large lemon, juice and zest, divided
3⁄4 teaspoon fine sea salt, more if needed (adjust according to taste)
