Broiled salmon fillet with sweet red pepper sauce.
Salmon fillets baked in an oven and served with delicious homemade red pepper sauce. Very delicious salmon recipe. Salmon steaks, fillets, pan-dressed whole salmon, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick, are the best for broiling. Just brush salmon pieces generously with melted butter or margarine, olive oil or any fish sauce before and during broiling. Turn thicker salmon pieces once halfway through broiling. Broil the fish for 10-15 minutes.

Broiled Salmon Fillet with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce
- 2 medium-size sweet red pepper
- 2 cloves garlic,unpeeled
- 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil
- 4 salmon fillets
Preheat the broiler.
On a broiler pan set 6 inches from the heat, broil the red peppers, turning occasionally, until charred all over-5 to 8 minutes. Transfer the peppers to a brown paper bag; seal the bag, set it in a bowl and cool for 10 minutes. The peppers will steam so that their skins peel off easily.
Meanwhile, lower the oven temperature to 400°F(200°C). Wrap the garlic cloves in aluminum foil and roast until soft-about 5 minutes; peel and set aside. Raise the heat again and broil.
When the peppers are cool enough to handle, peel them over a bowl to catch any juice; discard the stems and seeds. In an electric blender or food processor,purée the peppers and their juice with garlic, vinegar, and olive oil. Set aside.
On a broiler pan rack set 8 inches from the heat, broil the salmon fillets for 2-3 minutes; turn and broil another 2 to 3 minutes or until opaque when tested with a fork in the center. Transfer the broiled salmon fillet to a warm platter and spoon 2 generous tablespoons of the sauce down the center of each broiled salmon fillet, smoothing into a broad ribbon.
