Super easy way to make great salmon. The uniform thickness of the pinwheels makes broiling super easy and the pinwheel allows the seasoning to saturate the fish. Good balsamic makes the difference in the flavor. Presentation is great!

  • Roll the salmon strips, beginning on the thickest side, into 6 pinwheels. Secure with wooden skewers. Drizzle the balsamic and garlic mixture generously over each pinwheel.

  • Place salmon under hot broiler and cook for 7 minutes. Turn pinwheels over; cook until edges are brown, and fish is easily flaked with a fork, about 7 additional minutes. Sprinkle with pepper before serving.

My Husband found it a little dry. I think it certainly needs some oil. Read More

This dish is simple and sooo good! I didn't change a thing on this one but will add a little more balsamic vinegar and broil the salmon in a smaller dish. Read More

I cut this back to 1 portion but made it as written otherwise. The length of time really depends on the type of salmon and how thick it is. I think that Coho salmon would have worked better than the Atlantic salmon that I used. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

This was really easy to make. It looked impressive on the plate and tasted good. It was a little bland for our taste. But I will make it again, perhaps adding some spices. Read More
