Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each), skin-on or skinless 🐟
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 🫒
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 🍋
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced 🧄
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme 🌿
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano 🌿
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional, for a smoky kick) 🌶️
  • Salt and black pepper to taste 🧂

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Broiler:
    • Preheat your broiler to high. Adjust the oven rack to the top position to ensure even cooking.
  2. Prepare the Marinade:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried oregano, paprika (if using), salt, and black pepper.
  3. Marinate the Salmon:
    • Put the salmon fillets in a sealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the salmon, making sure to coat every fillet completely. To infuse the flavors, give the salmon a 15–30 minute marinade.
  4. Broil the Salmon:
    • For simple cleanup, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place the salmon fillets skin-side down on the baking sheet if using skin-on salmon.
    • Place the salmon-filled baking sheet under the broiler’s preheated element. Cook the salmon for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it is thoroughly cooked and flakes with a fork. The thickness of the fillets may affect the cooking time.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once the salmon is cooked to perfection, remove it from the broiler.
    • Along with your preferred side dishes, such as rice, steamed vegetables, or a crisp salad, serve the Quick and Easy Broiled Salmon hot.
