It’s Tuesday, I am having one of my favorite couples over for dinner and I need something quick, clean, and delicious (duh). I went to my local grocery store and was thrilled to see they had a 30 oz wild caught salmon filet. It was really pretty in color, had no added dyes or ingredients, and the flesh looked fresh and soft around the edges.
Y’all, broiled salmon is so easy you really don’t need a recipe but here’s what I did.
- 30 oz WILD CAUGHT Salmon Filet
- Dry or fresh dill
- Lemons for serving
- Turn on your broiler.
- Take salmon out of the package and rinse off both sides. Place on a platter and pat dry with paper towels.
- Grease baking sheet with EVOO and place dried salmon skin side down on the EVOO.
- Pour about a tablespoon to a tablespoon and a half of EVOO over the filet and distribute evenly with a silicone brush.
- Top with tons of S&P and dry dill. I like to cover with dry dill.
- Broil for 10-12 minutes.
- Remove and let rest for about 5-10 minutes. Cut into four pieces.
- I serve with lemons wedges (I LIKE A TON OF FRESH LEMON JUICE ON MY FISH) and fresh greens.
That’s it. Roast some brussels sprouts or sweet potato wedges on the side and you have a super simple, super delicious supper on the table in no time. Want a little something to dip your salmon and veggies in? Mix together greek yogurt, dill, scallions, lemon juice and tons of salt and pepper. Voila! Oh, and don’t forget the wine!
P.S. If you are just making a large filet for you and one other person, save the other pieces for breakfast or lunch the next day. Tiffany is the one who actually told me YES eat salmon for breakfast and it’s awesome alongside a couple of scrambled eggs. Or throw it over greens and eat it cold as a salad at work.
