Broiled salmon = less mess than frying on the stovetop + it’s easy to cook many fillets at once. We love broiling salmon fillets for quick meal-prep options that last a few days and our cast-iron sheet pan comes in perfectly handy. Whereas you can maybe pan fry two fillets at once, a sheet pan can do at least 6 so it’s great for larger families and those of us who like leftovers!

A note on sheet pans 

Don’t have a cast-iron sheet pan? No worries! You can grab one for a few bucks here, or you can use a broiler-safe sheet pan that you already have on hand.

Marinade options

For this recipe, we’ve used our basic lemon herb marinade but you can also keep it simple and just drizzle the fillets with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper before broiling. You can also come up with your own marinade option. Let your freak flavor flag fly.
