Elegant, simple and delicious are just a few words that describe this amazing entree. When I first started making salmon many years ago, this was my go to recipe. This delicate fish is eye-catching and the flavor is full of so much gorgeousnesses. It’s great for a date night at home or for any special occasion, yet it’s so simple that it works for any weekday meal. This is an excellent low carb meal and it’s loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids.
These salmon steaks not only get its full-bodied and robust flavors from the soy sauce marinade but the bone-in really adds amazing yumminess. The moist and flaky texture of the fish coupled with the flavor will leave you drooling for more. Broiling the steaks gives it really great color and draws out the natural healthy fish oil, which results in maximum flavor. This recipe can also be grilled. Enjoy and Happy Cooking.
Broiled Salmon Steaks
A 30-Minute recipe that is simple and delicious. It’s low carbs and loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids.
- 2 pounds salmon steaks (3 salmon steaks – about 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick)
FOR THE MARINADE:
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt (you can adjust if you are watching your sodium intake).
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
- 3 cloves garlic crushed or finely minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (1 small piece finely minced)
- 2 scallions finely chopped (plus extra for garnish)
Preheat your oven broiler if required/recommended.
In a small bowl, add all marinade ingredients and mix toroughly.
Rinse salmon steaks and pat dry with paper towel.
Place the steaks on a large plate. Pour the marinade over the fish and coat well. Let the salmon sit in the marinade for 7 minutes and then flip it over for the second side to marinate for another 7 minutes.
Line a small sheetpan with parchment paper. Drizzle some oil or use an oil spray to lightly grease the parchment paper.
Note: Greasing the parchment paper prevents it from burning under the broiler plus cleaning up the pan is made easy.
Place the salmon steaks on the lined sheetpan. Shake off any excess marinade, reserving the liquid part of the marinade for optional use when you flip the steak half way through the cook time.
Place the pan with the steaks under the broiler, about 6 inches from the heat source. Broil 3 to 5 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon. Carefully flip the steaks using a spatula (or 2) and pour the reserved marinade over the steaks. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes more.
Note: I used a 1 1/4 inch thick steak and broiled it for a total of 10 minutes.
Remove the pan and transfer the salmon steaks to a serving platter. Garnish with chopped scallions if desired. Plate and serve with your desired vegetables. Enjoy and Happy Cooking!
You can use salmon fillet if you don’t want to be bothered with the bones. This recipe can also be grilled.
