Quick Broiled Salmon with Ginger Mint Salsa
Short on time? You receive enormous nutritional benefits by adding from this flavorful combination of tangy salsa and salmon to your Healthiest Way of Eating. And it can be prepared in minutes. It is an exceptionally good source of hard-to-find, health-promoting omega-3 fatty acids.
Quick Broiled Salmon with Ginger Mint Salsa Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb salmon fillet, cut in half
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Salsa
  • 1 ripe tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup green onions, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh mint, minced
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. To Quick-Broil, preheat broiler and place an all stainless steel skillet (be sure the handle is also stainless steel) or cast iron pan under the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot. The pan should be 5 to 7 inches from the heat source.
  2. Rub salmon with 2 tsp fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. (You can Quick Broil with the skin on; it just takes a minute or two longer. The skin will peel right off after cooking.)
  3. Using a hot pad, pull pan away from heat and place salmon on hot pan, skin side down. Return to broiler. Keep in mind that it is cooking rapidly on both sides so it will be done very quickly, usually in 7 minutes depending on thickness. Test with a fork for doneness. It will flake easily when it is cooked. Salmon is best when it is still pink inside.
Salsa
  1. Combine all salsa ingredients.
  2. Spoon over salmon.
  3. Garnish with mint and a sprinkle of extra virgin olive oil.

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which Quick Broiled Salmon with Ginger Mint Salsa is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling."
