Broiled Citrus Salmon
A quick and simple recipe for broiled (or grilled) salmon seasoned with fresh lime, lemon and orange, with a touch of molasses for the perfect balance of sweetness.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons molasses
1/8 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
4 (5-ounce) salmon fillets or steaks
1 orange, juiced
- Preheat broiler.
- In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, lime juice, lemon juice, molasses, salt and pepper; mix well.
- Place salmon on a broiling pan, skin-side down. Brush liberally with marinade and broil until crisp on the outside and flesh flakes easily, about 7 minutes per inch of thickness.
- Remove from broiler and sprinkle immediately with orange juice.
- Serve hot.
Makes 4 servings.
Tip: If grilling, be sure to spray the grill liberally with a cooking spray to prevent sticking. Better yet, we suggest grilling the fish in a well-oiled basket or on a cedar plank over indirect heat.
