Delicious Quick Easy Broiled Salmon Recipe
The high heat cooks it quickly and evenly, giving the fish a crispy texture. Oh, and there’s no need to flip the fish! The secret here is to place a cast iron skillet under a pre-heated broiler for about ten minutes. When the cast iron is fully heated you place the salmon. The contact of the cold salmon skin with the skillet will sear the skin and make it crispy and delicious. But if you don’t enjoy eating fish skin, you can easily remove it when you are eating.
