Salmon is one of the most versatile and delicious types of fish. It’s packed with flavor, and it’s also incredibly good for you. In fact, salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and other essential nutrients. Whether you’re cooking for a dinner party or just looking for a healthy and delicious meal, you’re going to love this Perfect 8-Minute Broiled Salmon. This recipe yields the most buttery, delicious, perfect salmon every time, without fail!
When it comes to the different type of fish, I truly believe that salmon is one of the most, if not THE most, delicious fish out there. It has a rich, buttery flavor that is hard to resist. When cooked properly, the flesh is tender and moist, and it flakes apart beautifully. And not to mention, it’s incredibly versatile.
Whether you are baking it with lemon for a delightful summertime dinner, or putting a viral spin on it and turning it into sushi cups, you truly can’t go wrong with salmon. No matter how you prepare it, it’s guaranteed to turn out delicious!
This preparation of salmon is hands-down my favorite, though. While the most common way to prepare salmon is to bake it, I absolutely LOVE broiling it. The broiler truly brings out the soft, buttery flavor and texture of the salmon, making it melt in your mouth. When I had salmon prepared this way, it absolutely changed my life! And the best part is, this salmon only needs to cook for about 8-9 minutes, so it’s a quick, simple, and incredibly easy way to prepare it. What could be better than that?!
To make these perfect salmon filets, start by preheating your oven, on the broil setting, on high. Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place your salmon filets on top of it. Pour your oil on top of the salmon filets and rub until they are generously coated in the oil. Then, add your seasonings and rub them into the salmon filets.
Once your salmon filets are seasoned, place them into the oven, on the bottom rack. If your oven only has one broil setting (like mine does), then place them onto the middle rack. Broil for 8-9 minutes. Once they’re done, remove them from the oven, serve, and enjoy!
