Dinner in 15 Minutes: Broiled Salmon


This school year has been incredibly busy, and I’ve grown to appreciate the importance of strategizing in the kitchen. On Sundays, I usually cook one big dish that I can eat for lunch throughout the week. When I know I’ll be rushing in the evening, I pull something out of the freezer to defrost by dinner time. If I have what feels like an endless to do list, a simple dinner is far more satisfying than a big meal that requires plenty of work.

Today’s post is short, since I have to go pack for my trip to Colorado this weekend. If you want to add some delicious healthy fat to your diet, consider wild caught salmon. I get it frozen from Trader Joe’s and use it as an easy weeknight dinner.

Broiled Salmonserves 2
Prep: 2 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

Two 4 ounce wild caught, skin on salmon fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried dill
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the broiler on high while preparing the salmon. Line a small baking sheet with foil and place salmon on the sheet. In a small bowl, mix oil, lemon juice, and seasonings. Spoon over each salmon fillet until evenly covered.

On a rack placed in the top third of the oven, broil salmon for 8-10 minutes. Check regularly until salmon flakes when pulled with a fork.

About Humble Foodie

While we both love to eat well, life as AmeriCorps volunteers doesn’t afford us the budget to try every new restaurant and type of cuisine. With many post-graduate expenses and limited financial resources, what’s a foodie to do? The answer is here, at The Humble Foodie. Instead of spending our hard-earned cash paying other people to cook for us, we’re spending as frugally as possible making delicious meals at home.
