A Simple Way To Broil The Best Salmon
One of our monthly grocery purchases is a 6-piece bag of wild salmon from Bristol Bay, Alaska. It is absolutely phenomenal, and it's been fun to find a variety of recipes and techniques to cook it.
This month, I haven't had a lot of time to get creative - I'm sure you understand that all too well. So here's a simple broiler method and a two-ingredient "recipe" for your next salmon craving.
Once the salmon is thawed and rinsed, lay it in the bottom of a baking dish and pat it dry.
I poured most of an 8-oz bottle of Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing over the salmon and covered the dish with foil. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for an hour or two. More is better, so for as long as you can.
Preheat the broiler in your oven and bring the salmon out of the refrigerator. Transfer it to a rimmed baking sheet and pour the marinade over the salmon to completely cover it.
The recommendation is 6 minutes of broiling per inch of height. My salmon filets were about two inches tall, so I set the timer for 6 minutes, basted the fish and put it back in for 6 more minutes. It came out carmelized and so tender. I'm glad I made enough that we could both have two pieces, otherwise I might have arm wrestled him for them.
