The perfect pescatarian dish for your a weeknight, as it comes together in less than 20 minutes.
Salmon is such a versatile fish that is not only full of healthy nutrients but is also quick to cook and low fuss. You can keep it very simple with just a drizzle of olive oil and lemon or dress it up with a glaze such as our Citrus Honey Glaze.
The glaze we are sharing with you today is sweet and salty with umami notes from the miso and ginger. You can also turn the heat up by adding a pinch of red pepper flakes, or a bit of curry (we love Jennifer Fisher's curry salt in this recipe!)
We recommend broiling the fish skin side up on a baking sheet, but you can also pan roast skin side down in a cast iron skillet to achieve a crispy skin.
The key to making a killer piece of roasted salmon is not overcooking it. Cooking proteins can be tricky, especially if you’re new to the practice. A perfectly cooked salmon fillet is supple and juicy but can quickly turn to an overly firm and dry piece of fish in a matter of minutes. It’s best to stay close to the oven when roasting salmon and check regularly to prevent overdoing it.
Cook time will vary depending on the size, but a general guideline is to cook for 3-4 minutes per half inch of thickness. We recommend that you start checking it at around 7-8 minutes.
