In general, salmon should broil seven to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish and the distance it is from the broiler. If the piece of fish is particularly thin, make sure to check on the fish a few minutes early to ensure it does not dry out.
Broiling is a healthy way to cook salmon, and different flavors can be incorporated depending on the chef's taste preferences. To add extra flavor, marinade the fish with soy sauce, lemon juice, honey, garlic and ginger. Other ways to enhance the flavor include adding herbs, such as dill, or simply a light dose of sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
Check on the fish to ensure it is cooked through, and do not turn it until the outside exterior appears to be well-caramelized. Once this happens, it is ready to eat.
