Broiled Salmon and Tomatillos

image_pdf

We had a nice crop of tomatillos this year, thanks to a neighbor who shared! Some got husked and put in the freezer, others got cooked or put into salsa.

This dish has those tasty, tart green fruit broiled on top of a beautiful salmon fillet.

Here’s How you Do it:

For each of the four dishes –

Sprinkle salt and pepper on the flesh side of the fillet – generously salt and pepper the skin side.

Place the oil in the bottom of a single serving baking dish, like a gratin dish. Place the salmon, skin side down.

Top with slices of tomatillo and sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper and the minced jalapeño.

Place the dishes on the top rack of the oven and broil until the fish is a delicate pink and flakes with a fork (but is not dry). This will take about 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet.

Serve with chopped cilantro and sliced avocado directly out of the cookware.
