Salmon is our go-to fish. We love the flavor, how simple it is to prepare and the fact that it’s a great whole-food source of Omega-3.
Since we discovered Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon at Costco it’s also very affordable. So much so that we find ourselves eating salmon at least a couple of times a month.
But if you’ve ever prepared fish you know that the process is somewhat delicate in nature. It’s easy to overcook, leaving you with a very dry or rubbery result. And for that reason, some people tend to stay away.
The first several times I cooked salmon (and really any kind of fish) I know that I overcooked it. After researching how to cook salmon properly (a simple Google search did the trick) I finally started making it so that it was deliciously flavorful and the delicate fats were not destroyed.
I have to say that broiling salmon was pretty foreign to me until I read the book Fish Without a Doubt by Moonen and Finnamore. It has tons of creative recipes all made with fish! This broiled salmon is one that is inspired from their book.
I love the preparation of broiled salmon because it takes very little time and the process is pretty fool-proof. You just need to make sure that your broiler is good and hot before you put the salmon in and that the rack is about 6 inches from the element.
I hope that this recipe makes it easy for you to enjoy salmon on a more regular basis!Print
