Maple Broiled Salmon


Atlantic Salmon

Fresh Atlantic salmon is my favorite fish.  Not only is it easy to prepare and quick to cook, but it’s also a healthy option for dinner.

Living in a New England state like New Hampshire, and having some of the freshest seafood available, I cook seafood often. Salmon has a meatier texture similar to swordfish and tuna, and it pairs very well with a variety of flavors. Whether it is garlic, lemon and lime or maple, it is easy to whip up a delicious salmon dish with just a few items that you have right in your own cupboard.

This recipe was an experiment  that turned out to be delicious and I am happy to share it.   Leftover fish can easily be used by placing it over your favorite salad greens for a healthy and satisfying lunch.  Yum!!

    *If using an outdoor grill, turn grill on medium heat and use a grill pan so fish doesn't fall through grates while cooking.

Recipe Notes

Whenever possible, I   buy  salmon that has been frozen at sea as opposed to the farmed , as farmed fish has been shown to have concentrations of pesticides and other chemicals that have been shown harmful to the body.
