Quick Broiled Salmon with Ginger Mint Salsa

by Sue
(New York)



Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1/3 lb salmon fillet, cut in half
2 tsp lemon juice
sea salt and pepper to taste
Salsa
1 ripe tomato, diced
1/2 cup green onions, minced
1 tsp ginger, minced
2 tsp fresh mint, minced
1 tsp lime juice
sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

To Quick-Broil, preheat broiler and place an all stainless steel skillet (be sure the handle is also stainless steel) or cast iron pan under the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot. The pan should be 5 to 7 inches from the heat source.

Rub salmon with 2 tsp fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. (You can Quick Broil with the skin on; it just takes a minute or two longer. The skin will peel right off after cooking.)

Using a hot pad, pull pan away from heat and place salmon on hot pan, skin side down. Return to broiler. Keep in mind that it is cooking rapidly on both sides so it will be done very quickly, usually in 7 minutes depending on thickness. Test with a fork for doneness. It will flake easily when it is cooked. Salmon is best when it is still pink inside.

Salsa

Combine all salsa ingredients.
Spoon over salmon.
Garnish with mint and a sprinkle of extra virgin olive oil.
