High 5 Easy Broiled Salmon

High 5 Easy Broiled Salmon

Recipe by Chef Laura RomitoCourse: Entree, MainCuisine: American


Prep time




  • 1 whole side of salmon, skin on, approx. 2.5-3 lbs. (or less if you’re feeding fewer people; buy 6-8 ounces raw fish per person)

  • Pure olive oil or other oil that works well with high heat

  • High 5 Power Lifter Coarse Bold Salt (to taste)

  • High 5 Sweet Sass Sugar Blend (to taste)


  • Method
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully cut through the flesh down TO the skin but not THROUGH the skin into the portion size you’d like to serve
  • Rub salmon with a very small amount of oil (approx. 1-2 tsp), even down into the cuts in the flesh
  • Immediately before broiling, sprinkle with a very light layer of Power Lifter from up high to get even seasoning without clumps; this is NOT a rub – use just like salt, but less!
  • Sprinkle with a very light layer of Sweet Sass from up high to get even seasoning without clumps
  • Pat Power Lifter and Sweet Sass into salmon, including down into the cuts
  • Grilling
  • Preheat broiler for 3 minutes on high
  • Place salmon FLESH SIDE UP on a baking sheet
  • Place salmon under broiler, on second or third rack (don’t use the rack closest to the broiler or the sugar in the Sweet Sass will burn
  • After approx. 5 minutes, check the salmon; the flesh will be turning opaque and will be pulling open at the cuts; return to oven as needed, checking frequently; as soon as the salmon is ALMOST fully opaque but a bit bright pink near the skin inside the cuts, turn off the broiler and close the door again for 1-2 minutes more
  • Remove from the oven and cover loosely with parchment or foil; rest 5 minutes
  • Remove salmon by sliding a fish spatula or other thin spatula between the flesh and the skin
  • Serve hot with High 5 Cilantro-almond pesto, basil pesto, or BBQ sauce of your choice
