The key to the most delicious salmon is to avoid overcooking it; the fatty, aromatic, rich flavor of the fish is best when it's just cooked. Easy Broiled Salmon helps you get the most perfectly cooked fish every time, with a sweet, citrusy, and herby glaze all over to boot. Easy Broiled Salmon is perfect on its own or as the topping to the best salad ever.
