Broiled Lemon Herb Salmon topped with a Crispified Salmon Skin


Buy salmon steak at the market.  How?  Put the fish next to your noise and smell it.  It should smell fresh and sweet.  If it smells very fishy, slap your butcher with it.  Flesh should be firm and reddish.  Can't decide which one to get?  Get the one with the least fat, leaving me the nice and fatty one for myself.  Try and buy some wild salmon if you could afford it.  Now, take it home wash it, scale it and debone it.  How?  Watch this YouTube video.


Filet it and separate skin from the meat and meat from the bone.  This should yield two filets and two salmon skins.  Do not throw that skin away. It's the best  part.  Why you ask?  Because its the protective tissue of the salmon and its been marinating in the ocean which is filled with bunch of yummy stuff and what not.

Put these ingredients on the filet with a slice of lemon on the bottom...


Ingredients list... kinda.


...like so. Sliced lemon on the bottom. Broil for 15 mins...


Salt and pepper salmon skin side up on aluminum foil and broil also for 15 mins or until super crispy but not burnt.




and Voila!

You have yourself a Broiled Lemon Herb Salmon topped with a Crispified Salmon Skin. CRUNCH!
