The broiler is a great alternative to grilling when it comes to everyone’s favourite fish; salmon. The high heat creates a crispy skin with a perfectly moist interior and in this particular dish, salmon is brushed lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper, and served with a flavourful edamame and feta salad, making it a tasty and nutritious dish perfect for a light summer meal.
