Saturday Recipe

I do enjoy salmon and this recipe really appealed to me.

Broiled Salmon with Peppercorn-Lime Rub

Spice up fish night by giving salmon a delectable 4-ingredient rub before cooking. A quick quinoa-
vegetable salad rounds out the meal.
  • 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)


  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Lime wedges (optional)


1. Preheat broiler.
2. Place fish, skin sides down, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Combine remaining ingredients except lime wedges; sprinkle over fish. Broil 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
Quinoa-vegetable salad: Combine 1 1/4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth and 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa in a medium saucepan; bring mixture to a boil. Cover and simmer 12 minutes or until liquid is almost absorbed. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini and 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.

Have a great weekend


  1. Hi Jo .. sounds interesting - I love salmon ... and often have lemon-coriander couscous with it ... I think I'll have some tomorrow! Cheers Hilary

    1. You can celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with us Hilary.

  2. I soooo want to like salmon. It looks delicious every time I see a picture but I can't get used to the taste. It's way too strong.

    1. Funny you find it too strong JoJo. I think it is one of the milder tasting fishes.

  3. I like the rub stuff on the salmon and wonderi f it would work if I baked favourite style. Happy Thanksgiving!
