A zesty relish adds oomph to simply-broiled salmon.


  • 1 small onion, finely diced

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 4 salmon fillets, 8 ounces each

  • 3 teaspoons canola oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar


  1. Heat broiler. Place onion and scallions in a bowl of ice water; soak 20 minutes.

  2. Place salmon fillets on a baking sheet. Rub oil over all fillets; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Broil, skin side down, until salmon is opaque throughout, 8 minutes.

  3. Drain onion and scallions, squeezing in paper towels to remove as much liquid as possible; transfer to a bowl. Add sugar, vinegar, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Serve relish with salmon.
