Printable version



  • 1- to 1¼-lbs. salmon
  • Cooking spray or foil
  • Optional seasoning: Garlic Mrs Dash


1.  Make sure your upper oven rack is in the 2nd (not closest) notch from the top.
2.  Preheat broiler for 5- to 10-minutes.
3.  Place fish onto a cookie sheet or broiler pan (which—for easy clean up—you’ve either covered with foil, or sprayed with cooking spray).
4.  Place fish under broiler and broil approximately 5-minutes per side (depending on the thickness of the filets).
5.  Fish will flake easily with a fork when done.
