Classic: Broiled Salmon ~1922

Broiled Salmon Recipe.

Why mess with the classics?

I cross referenced salmon recipes from three separate cookbooks (1856, 1905, 1922) and they are essentially the same: sprinkle the salmon with salt, pepper, and butter. Broil/bake at a low temperature. Garnish with parsley.

Substitute the butter for olive oil and you have your basic 21st century salmon recipe.
