Start with some fresh salmon.
Grease a baking sheet using the olive oil, and place the salmon skin-side up on the sheet.
Broil under high heat for 5 minutes. The skin will bubble up, which will make it super tasty. However, you can easily remove the skin if you prefer.
Slice up some garlic.
Flip the salmon, and add the soy sauce and garlic.
Broil for another 2-3 minutes until the edges of the salmon are slightly crispy. And there you have it. Beautifully broiled salmon in less than 10 minutes.
Forget the restaurant. Eat at home knowing that your meal is charged with nutritional goodness and none of the bad stuff.
- 12 oz salmon - two 6 oz. filets
- 1/2 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Turn the oven on high broil.
- Drizzle the olive oil on a baking sheet and use a paper towel to grease the sheet. The purpose of the olive oil is to keep the salmon from sticking to the pan.
- Place the salmon on the baking sheet skinless-side down (flat skin side will be up facing the broiler). There are a couple of reasons for this. First, if your filets have skin, this will broil and crisp the skin. This will make it easy to remove the skin if you want. If you prefer, you can eat the skin. Second, the skinless side will get a nice brown crisp from the pan.
- Broil for 5 minutes.
- While the salmon is broiling, chop the garlic.
- Flip the salmon, and add the garlic and soy sauce.
- Broil for another 2 minutes - watch for browning and then remove from the broiler.
- If you have two 6 oz. filets, cut each filet in half.
