Starting the rice before the salmon and then steaming or sautéing some vegetables while the salmon cooks means that everything will be ready to serve at the same time. What’s not to love about a tasty and hassle free dinner that scores bonus points for being a healthy option as well?

If you are a friend of mine on Facebook, you might have laughed with me the first time I tried broiling salmon. When you change your mind at the last minute and decide to broil dinner instead of baking it, it is smart to remove the parchment paper from the pan.

Just a friendly tip, in case you don’t want to light that paper on fire. Luckily, I was still in the kitchen and was able to quickly transfer the unharmed salmon to a clean tray.

How To Broil Salmon

First, do not use line the tray with parchment. Learn from my mistakes, friends. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Feel free to line the baking sheet with foil to make cleanup easier, just oil the foil instead.

Place the salmon on the baking sheet and squeeze lemon generously over the salmon. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and then sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Broil for about 8-10 minutes, until the salmon barely flakes with a fork.

I typically serve salmon with Rice Pilaf or simple steamed rice. Sriracha Honey Roasted Broccoli works well with salmon, as do these Simple Skillet Green Beans or this Asparagus with Peas and Basil.

Broiled Salmon would also be delicious alongside Orzo with Roasted Vegetables. (I love a side dish that you can make ahead of time too.)

Kitchen Tips: I use this baking sheet to make this recipe.
