Simple, quick, perfect for weeknight dinners but fancy enough for a holiday meal. Broiled in your oven and topped with herbs and green onion. Spring Herb Salmon is heart healthy dish loaded with flavor.
We all know Salmon is good for you, loaded with antioxidant amino acid, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, Vitamin D, selenium, niacin, protein, phosphorus and vitamin B6. Not to mention it has a great source of choline, pantothenic acid biotin, and potassium. Really Salmon can be a meal all its own!
This is a simple recipe that even beginners can make. The first step is to take your olive oil and whisk in your herbs; thyme, parsley, and basil. Then whisk in your sherry and green onions. All that takes about 5 minutes, this includes the time to chop up your green onion.
Next is to take your fish and lay it skin side down onto a cast iron skillet or an oven safe pan. Now drizzle and spread your olive oil mixture onto the top of it.
Place it into the oven and turn your oven to broil. The Salmon can take anywhere from 6 minutes to 10 minutes to cook under the broiler. I suggest testing it with a fork (stick the fork into the thickest part of the salmon and twist slightly to see if the fish will flake easily) at 6 minutes and every minute after until it flakes easily.
Note take the pan out of the oven to test the fish to ensure you do not burn yourself. Keep in mind that if you have a thin piece or part of any fish it will cook faster and it may be drier than the thickest side, therefore when buying fish you want one that has almost an equal thickness throughout.
Take out of the oven when done and allow to cool slightly (about 1 minute) and serve and enjoy your delicious, flavor-packed, healthy Spring Salmon meal!
