Broiled Salmon

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare salmon. It takes less than 5 minutes to prep and then you put it in the oven and let it do the job. In 10-15 minutes, dinner is served. Simple, but divinely delicious. The fish is flaky, moist and so good for you. With a squeeze of lemon juice, you have yourself a healthy and amazing dinner, which looks stunning too.

Yields: 4 servings

Ingredients:

4 salmon portions, skin on

1 Tablespoon olive oil

salt, pepper

Preheat the oven to broil. Line a deep baking dish with aluminum foil. Place the fish on top of the foil, skin side down. Rub olive oil over the surface of the fish. Season with salt and pepper. Salmon is a thick fish, so season well – don’t be shy with the salt.  IMG_2736 Broil until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. You can check the fish for doneness with a fork. If it flakes easily, the fish is ready.  IMG_2750 Slide a thin metal spatula between the fish and the skin. It will come off in one piece beautifully. This part always makes me want to smile and break out into a song.  IMG_2752 Isn’t this the easiest way that you ever saw to skin salmon? PLUS, no cleanup necessary!   IMG_2778 There are so many directions you can go from here by adding different sauces, glazes or even breadcrumbs. I’ll be sure to post my favorites with you soon.

    I make my salmon a little different. In a bowl mix a few Tablespoons of mayo and ranch, spread it over the fish and season with some paprika, garlic powder, and lemon pepper. Then put some fresh dill and a couple slices of butter on top. Bake at 350 for 16 minutes. Yum!!

      Salmon is very versatile, so many side dishes would go well with it. Check out the Side Dishes that I have posted. I love serving Salmon with Rice or Couscous. Some of my favorite salads and veggies – green beans, Cauliflower Tomato Salad, Crunchy Cabbage Cucumber Salad.

    HI Olga, I made this salmon and used half of it in shuba, and other half will either make your salmon pasta for dinner or salmon melts for breakfast, love both of them. Just wanted to say, God Bless you for doing this. I go on many sites looking for something new to cook up, but 90% of the time come back your website because you got good taste and your recipes are superb. Keep it up! :)
