How long does it take to broil salmon?
Broiling salmon takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish and how well done you like your salmon. For a one inch thick piece of salmon, it will take about 5-6 minutes for medium and 9-10 minutes for it to be cooked all the way through until its opaque and flaky. This is true whether you use a spice rub, marinade, or sauce. To make sure it cooks correctly, you will want it about 6 inches away from the heat source. And for easy clean-up, cover your baking pan with foil.
What is the best temperature to broil salmon?
Most ovens have a broiler temperature of between 500-550 degrees Fahrenheit and this is the right temperature to broil salmon. Don't worry about the difference if your oven is slightly lower than 550 degrees, it may just need an extra thirty seconds to a minute of cooking. For baking salmon, 425 degrees Fahrenheit is generally used. If you ever notice that the top of your salmon is burning while broiling, you can move it into a 425 degree oven to let it finish cooking.
