Broiled Salmon Filet with Wine Sauce

Add some healthy omega-3 fatty acids to your diet with a delicious salmon dinner. The low calorie wine sauce with watercress or parsley is a yummy flavor enhancement. But if you need a super quick meal, skip the sauce and serve the salmon with lemon wedges. Either way, you will enjoy this delicious fish.

2 ¼ lb. Salmon fillet(s)
1 tsp. Olive oil
2 Tbsp. Lemon juice or the juice of 1 medium lemon
¼ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Black pepper

Preheat the broiler and place rack so fish will broil about 4 inches from the heat. Rinse and pat dry the fillet(s) with a paper towel. Brush fillets with olive oil. Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Spray a broiler pan with a nonstick spray. Place salmon on the pan and broil for about 8 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork and is opaque in the center. Very thick fillets will take longer. Sever with lemon wedges or with wine sauce below.Makes 6 servings.
