Simple Broiled Salmon

Love the idea of making a perfectly cooked piece of salmon, but not exactly sure how to go about doing it?

I talk to people all the time who, for a number of reasons, fear cooking fish. Whether you fall into that category or are just looking for some pointers, this short Simple Broiled Salmon video will give you a bunch of simple tips for exactly how to make that perfect piece of salmon -- and they apply to almost any kind of fish for that matter.

Every Sunday when I go to the farmers' market with my family, without fail one of our first stops is to visit Marilyn and Eileen (who we long ago dubbed "the Fish Ladies") to see their gorgeous faces and their equally gorgeous, just-out-of-the-sea catch. It's not often that one sees two such beautiful and lovely women hauling around and carving up huge sides of fish, but these two are total originals.

With what I bring home from the Fish Ladies I have made everything from Roasted Mediterranean Salmon, to 1, 2, 3 Miso Scallops, to Sake Steamed Mussels, but I so love their salmon and since Sunday should be a day of rest (but rarely is, sadly) I try to make dinner as easy as can be. A simple piece of broiled salmon (served with a fresh summer salad) always fits the bill.

Packed with tons of omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is an excellent, healthy choice to serve your family. I taught my kids early on that salmon was good for their brains and they love when I make it since they feel like they're getting smarter with every bite!

Watch this quick video to pick up a few pointers on how to make a piece of fish that's flakey and moist -- with almost no clean up to boot!

    Hi, Just wondering why is a Salmon video under The Vegetarian category? As a vegetarian I would never eat fish...

    Love salmon. It's also good poached with a watercress sauce. Or just watercress, lemon and mayo in a sandwich.
