Broiled Salmon with Monkeypod Jam Dilly Beans
1 Jar Monkeypod Jam Dilly Beans
Pinch of Salt & Pepper
1 Tablespoon (15g) Mayonnaise
1 Teaspoon Chopped Fresh Dill, divided
1 Pound (450g) Skinless Center-Cut Salmon Fillets, divided into 2 to 4 portions
Preheat broiler and set top rack 4 to 6 inches from broiler element. (As with all broiling recipes and broiling steps in this recipe, watch carefully, as broilers vary greatly in their heat output.)
Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Stir together mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon dill. Spread dill and mayo evenly on salmon fillets.
Set salmon, mayonnaise side up, on top of dilly beans. In a large skillet, make sure it’s not touching the bottom of the pan, nor fully submerged in a dilly bean brine. Broil until mayonnaise is beginning to brown and salmon registers 110°F (43°C) in the very center for rare, 120°F (49°C) for medium-rare, or 130°F (54°C) for medium, 5 to 7 minutes.
Dilly Beans and a bit of the warm brine on each plate. Set salmon on top of Dilly Beans, mayonnaise side up.
