Simple Broiled Salmon

Wild caught salmon is the best choice and I allow 1/4 pound per person. I serve it with either my spaghetti with chard or rice with kale. Salmon benefits the heart, brain, eyes & joints, and helps protect against many diseases. Depending on the size of your salmon, it should cook about 10 minutes per inch of height. - Jenny Jones
