Broiled Salmon Recipe For A Summer Dinner

broiled salmon recipe

When you are tired of the same old boiled salmon, try a broiled salmon. I can see why they sell salmon steaks in the grocery store. This dish is a big hit at dinner parties. It’s easy to prepare, looks great, and you can put on some nice dinner plates to eat with it. You will be tempted to take a second and make a meal of it right away.

Start this easy broiled salmon recipe with a good grade olive oil. If you have it handy, use it. It’s cheap and it makes the food taste better. Any time you use quality olive oil it makes a big difference in how the food tastes. Cook it for just a few minutes to get the oil hot and then place it on a plate.

Best Add Ons

Another easy thing to add to a baked salmon recipe is a good spicy sauce. This works well if you have some nice hot peppers in your refrigerator or spice cabinet. I like to use a little bit of Old Bay Seasoning along with a tablespoon of ground pepper. A good combination for me is hot pepper sauce followed by a Tablespoon of cream cheese, chopped dill, and coarsely ground pepper. Adjust the ingredients to your taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking.

Some other things that work very well in this kind of recipe are a whole bunch of garlic and a sliced clove of garlic placed in a single layer. Lay the garlic in the pan and sprinkle it with salt right before you start cooking. You can add the cheese and pepper to the pan while it’s still warm from being cooked in the oven. This allows for the flavors to meld more naturally and enhance the true flavors of the salmon. You may even consider having a piece of bread in place of the garlic slice if you don’t like to eat it raw.

Difficult To Broil

It can be quite difficult to broil or even bake a piece of fish these days. There are new techniques out there that make the process much easier. These new techniques are truly more healthy than cooking an entire meal of raw fish. Here is a couple of them that you might find helpful when preparing a broiled salmon recipe:

One of the most popular techniques for cooking a delicious broiled salmon is simply plato ce ingredients in a large frying pan or wok and immediately throw it on until it begins to shimmer or when it is almost burning. This method of cooking allows for the ingredients to come to a boil and then reduce heat until it’s safe to remove the fish from the pan. If you’d like to do something different, try cooking it on your stovetop. All you have to do is add oil to the pan and allow it to heat through, then place your fish in and cover with the oil until it is done. Some people even enjoy using a basting brush to apply a little extra sauce or seasonings to the fillets.

Great Idea For Best Taste

Another great idea for a wonderful recipe for broiled salmon is to use a simple mixture of lemon juice and olive oil for the marinade. Many people prefer to use a combination of ingredients such as lemon juice, white wine, rosemary, oregano, Cayenne pepper, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, onion powder, and a squeeze of lemon pepper for the taste. Then just place the pieces in the marinade and let them sit overnight. The next morning simply slice some of the marinades into strips and rub this onto the pieces. Wait another day and viola – a delicious dinner has been created!


Of course, you don’t have to use just the cubes for your recipe for broiled salmon. If you have a good liquid, you can also use chunks of sweet potato, cauliflower, red pepper flakes, black pepper, garlic, onion, and any other ingredient you like. The choice is yours. You will want to keep the flavor of the piece you will be cooking very well. Many times you will find that the flavors will meld together rather nicely for an overall delicious flavor. This is where a good liquid like chicken stock or a soy-based broth comes into play for you to further enhance the flavor!
