Broiled Salmon with Parsley-Garlic Sauce
Pin it


3 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil, divided
2 packed cups curly or flat-leaf parsley, plus a few sprigs for garnish
2 tablespoons water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 4-ounce salmon fillets


1. Place 2 tablespoons garlic oil in a small ramekin; freeze several hours or until solid. (Freezing will help add thickness to the sauce.)

2. When ready to cook, preheat broiler. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add chopped parsley; boil 1 minute. Drain. Transfer warm parsley to bowl of food processor. Add frozen oil and water. Process until very smooth. Transfer to small saucepan; add salt and pepper to taste.

3. Brush salmon fillets with remaining garlic oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Place on rimmed baking sheet.

4. Broil salmon for 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

5. Carefully transfer salmon to serving platter or large individual plates. Gently heat parsley sauce and spoon over fish. Garnish with parsley sprigs.
