Salmon in the broiler- what spices?
Cooking salmon in the broiler tonight- what spices do you use?
My DH uses dried dill all the time.
I vote for a sprinkle of Zatar mix or a brushing of teriyaki sauce (my favorite).
Add your spices about 20 min. before cooking for even better flavor.
DO NOT overcook! You want the salmon to still be a bit translucent in the center when you remove it from the broiler, as it will continue to cook. If you fully cook it, you will be eating dried out salmon!
Have a delicious dinner.
Great call all around, p.j. Za'atar is the perfect topping--flavorful, tart, and with a nice crunch. I added a lot of crushed red pepper, topped with some sliced shallot and thin slices of lemon (per ballulah, below). Then barely broiled (5-6 minutes?) a gorgeous wild char. That was a luscious dinner. Yum. Thanks.
Next time: salt, black pepper, bit of lime juice, touch of chili (grind some dried to a fine); sprinkle some chopped cilantro upon serving.
Another option for future salmons -- my sister does a tasty marinade with maple syrup, soy sauce and red pepper flakes.
