How to Make a Healthy Salmon Recipe
Here is how I used to make the fish: heat oil in the non-stick skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Cook salmon fillets, glazed sides down, 1 minute; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 2 minutes more. Turn fillets over, and cook 3 minutes for medium-rare (salmon will be slightly pink in the middle), or longer if desired.
Lately, I’ve been broiling it instead.
Broiling the fish gives it that crispy top and juicy middle. And it’s a healthier option since you’re using less oil.
To broil, place the fillet(s) into your broiler at 500 degrees for 10-12 minutes. You want to keep an eye on the fish, so that the glaze does not burn . If pieces are too thin, I sometimes cover the thin edges with foil, and then uncover them once there are 5 minutes of cooking left.
