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

    Michael…you are an idiot. A complete and total moron IMHO.

    Your rude comments, and mine, for that matter, should be removed from this web site. Good comeback Jenny. Very professional. 🙂

    Thank you for the “10 minutes per inch of height” advice! Very helpful.

      A lot of my visitors are just learning how to cook, some as young as 12 and 13. That’s why I have my “Easy Recipes for Beginners” category. If you stay away from that category you might find something you like.
