Broiled Salmon With Lemon Sauce

Fiona Haynes
The American Heart Association recommends we eat fish at least twice a week. While salmon is obviously a "fatty" fish, the fats are the heart-healthy kind. Chock full of omega 3 fatty acids, which the body needs but can't manufacture, salmon should be included in all our diets, including low-fat ones.

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 5-ounce center-cut wild salmon fillets
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Whisk together lemon juice, chicken broth and cornstarch. Heat in a small saucepan over medium heat until sauce thickens, stirring constantly. Stir in honey and remove from heat. Cover to keep warm while you prepare the salmon.

Preheat broiler.

Place salmon fillets skin side down on a broiler pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.

Broil for 8-10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve salmon on four plates and top with about 3 tablespoons of lemon sauce. Season with freshly ground pepper to taste.
