Chances are, you've already got everything you'll need for this entrée in your pantry, except the salmon, of course. Paprika and lemon add a little flair to a simple weeknight dinner.


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 6-ounce pieces salmon fillet


  • Preheat broiler. Line rack of broiler pan with foil.
  • Using a chef's knife, mince and mash garlic to a paste with a pinch of salt. Stir garlic together with zest, juice, paprika, and mayonnaise. Pat fillets dry. Place fillets, skin side down, on broiler pan. Season each fillet with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Spread paprika mayonnaise evenly over tops of fillets.
  • Broil 3-to 4-inches from heat until mayonnaise is slightly browned in spots and fish is just cooked through, about 8 minutes.
