The best broiled salmon

So something you should know about me is that I hate practical jokes. I can’t even watch hidden camera shows, they make me want to vomit. So I have never been a huge fan of April Fool’s Day. I would occasionally play jokes on my brothers because I never felt bad for them. Ha! I do enjoy harmless little jokes, so here is what I did for my kids on April 1st.

I found the idea on Pinterest to make brownies (brown E’s), but I also made cookies (cook E’s). Get it they have a little chef hat on, so they’re cooks. My kids got it right off the bat and they thought it was hilarious.

My daughter didn’t get the memo that these were pretend treats, she still thought they were pretty tasty.

My kids then begged for real cookies and brownies so I guess the joke was on me.

Well, on to my recipe. No April Fooling, we love salmon at our house and eat it regularly. We have a few recipes that we love, but last time I went to make salmon I didn’t have all the ingredients for the regulars so I looked up something new. This salmon has a light, but flavorful butter sauce that makes for a delicious melt-in-your-mouth salmon. I used dried dill for my fish because that’s what I had, but it would probably be even better with fresh. My husband and kids loved this salmon and were sad that I didn’t make enough for seconds! Best of all, this dish is quick and easy.

The best Broiled Salmon


4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 Tablespoon dried dill

Preheat the oven’s broiler on high and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with nonstick spray.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stir in the garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, black pepper, garlic salt, and parsley.
Place the salmon fillets skin-side down on the prepared pan. Spoon about 1/3 of the butter sauce over the fillets, and sprinkle evenly with the dill.
Broil in the preheated oven for 3 minutes. Turn salmon fillets so that the side of the fillet faces up, and baste fillets with about 1/3 of the butter sauce; broil for 3 minutes. Turn the fillets to place the opposite side facing up; spoon on the remaining butter sauce; broil until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 additional minutes.
