With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I’m sure many of you are wondering what to cook for the big meal – besides the turkey of course. And so, the next few posts will be dedicated to what could be considered a ‘main’ dish instead of the little easy ‘appetizers’ I’ve been putting up lately.

If your family’s thinking of making turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, then it looks like the ‘meat’ area of the meal is covered. For those of you who may be looking to add another pretty dish that can stand up to the almighty presence of a fully prepped, over-sized chicken on steroids…here’s a family favorite.


Broiled Salmon

This recipe is simple and delicious (like many of the others shown on S.S.Munchies!). Depending on your own tastes and how big the salmon is, the amount of ingredients used will vary.


  • salmon
  • Italian seasoning, basil, oregano, paprika, rosemary, fresh dill
  • salt, pepper
  • EVOO
  • lemon
  • butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper (or aluminum foil) and drizzle EVOO along the bottom. Sprinkle salt and pepper before placing the salmon on the baking sheet (skin side down!).

Add your choice of herbs over the top of the salmon (the ones we used are listed in the ingredients). If you’re using the same herbs that we did then paprika would go on last, before placing fresh dill on top. Prettier that way? Perhaps. I’ll let you decide.

Taking a stick of butter, slice about 1/8 inch thick (or thinner) and place on top of the sprinkling of herbs. Once the butter is evenly placed along the salmon, slice a few lemons to place on top of the butter. The lemons make for a nice garnish and it also prevents the fish from burning while cooking in the oven.

Once you’re finished layering your fish, stick it in the oven for ten minutes. After ten minutes, lower the temperature of the oven to 350 degrees and continue baking for around twenty minutes. Bake time may differ depending on how large and thick your slice of salmon is so make sure to check on it from time to time!

The salmon should be nice and tender. Plate with some veggies on the side, or just make use of the lemons. Enjoy~!
