How to broil salmon in the oven

The broiler can be an intimating part of the oven. I know it took me a bit to figure it all out too.

Just think of it as the grill being turned upside down and you are cooking it closer to the heat.

You will want to line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper all around. This will help keep the juice all in one place.

Move your oven rack to a higher level. You will want it to be about 6 inches away from the top. Preheat your broiler on high.

Then simply broil your salmon for 6 to 8 minutes or until it is broiled to desired doneness.

How long does it take to broil salmon?

I like to keep my salmon under the broiler for about 6 to 8 minutes. If you have a thicker piece of salmon it may need 1-2 minutes longer.

How do you know if salmon is cooked fully?

The meat is cooked with the fat liquifies and runs out.  Cook the salmon further only to get the degree of doneness that you desire.

When flakes separate easily but the meat is translucent, its rare but edible.

Is it better to bake or broil salmon?

This is a toss up. I do love baking my salmon and love having that tender juiciness.

Broiling a salmon brings out its natural oiliness. Also, it creates a great glaze on the crust.

Can you bake salmon?

Absolutely! We love this baked as well. Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-25 minutes or until it is cooked to the desire temperature.

What are the best sides that pair well with salmon?

  1. I am trying to like Salmon; and this recipe looks very good. What cut/part of the salmon do I buy for just one person; and is the best cut of the salmon? Thank you very much.

  2. 5 stars
    We loved this! My salmon got a bit blackened, perhaps it was too close to the broiler, but nobody seemed to mind. Thanks for a terrific recipe.
