There's nothing like a freshly-cut grilled salmon. The golden brown char that grilling brings is an excellent complement to this subtly flavored fish. The problem is that preparing your grill can take up a lot of your time. You also need time for cleaning up. Broiling the salmon will allow you to get the grilled effect that you like without needing to spend time on preparation and cleanup.
You might not have a broiler at home but you can still broil if you have a conventional oven that can serve as your broiler.
•2 tablespoons of soy sauce
•1 tablespoon honey
•A tablespoon of rice vinegar
•A teaspoon of ginger that has been minced
•1 minced small red onion
•4 6oz skinned salmon fillets
•1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds
1. Combine the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, onions and ginger in a medium bowl and mix well. The thickness of the honey will take time before it is fully incorporated. In a Ziploc bag, add the salmon fillets and a few tablespoons of the mixture, seal and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Allowing the fish to marinate in an airtight bag enhances the penetration of flavor. Reserve the remaining mixture for use later.
2. Make sure you preheat the oven to 280 degrees F. Get your baking pan ready and line it with parchment paper, if you don’t have any, foil will do, just make sure you apply a layer of nonstick spray.
3. Position the salmon fillets on the baking pan with the skin side down. Position the baking tray a few inches from the heat source and broil until cooked through, this will take around 8 to 12 minutes. For the finishing touches, drizzle remaining sauce over the fish and top with sesame seeds.
Broiled salmon recipes allow you to enjoy a healthy but sumptuous meal. Any novice can make this dish in just a few minutes. So find out how to set your oven in broiling mode and try it out for yourself.
