Broiled Salmon with Lemon & Italian Seasoning

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim
In the Name of Master Fard Muhammad,
The Beneficent, The Most Merciful
To Whom All Holy Thanks and Praise is Due Forever






As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved and Blessed, Beautiful Black Sisters!

One of my favorite dishes to make is Broiled Salmon. It is simple and delicious; healthy and nutritious. Our Beloved Messenger (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah Forever Be Upon Him) taught us in HOW TO EAT TO LIVE, BOOK TWO about: “FISH – we can eat fish. Fish is raised under a different atmosphere. Fish is from a different world of life. Fish is born and fish lives, in the water of life. Fish is good for us.”  However, as with anything we eat, we have to be careful that we eat the right kinds of fish. Our Beloved Messenger (PBUH) taught us that, “Allah forbids us to eat a fish weighing over 50 pounds (or even weighing 50 pounds.)” Such as TUNA.

Under the Divine Leadership of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), The Nation of Islam had a very lucrative business importing fish from Peru and selling it at a very reasonable price among the so-called American Negroes, who were, as they are today, suffering from extreme poverty. The chosen fish was “Whiting H & G”

Muhammad Speaks

Whiting is a very inexpensive but healthy fish for us to eat. I usually bake it with lemon and a little salt and pepper. 1063874_376574149131388_941492846_o

But it has bones and it is hard for my son to eat, so he prefers Salmon.

It is also very healthy for us to eat, although not quite as inexpensive. When choosing Salmon for your family, be sure to choose “Wild Caught” as opposed to “Farmed.” Fish farms are full of filth and the fish are not as clean as the fish that are caught in their natural environment. Whenever you eat some type of living thing, whether it is cow, chicken, lamb or fish, you want to make sure it lived as healthy a life as possible. The saying is true, that “You are what you eat.” So we want to make sure we don’t eat fish or anything that lived off of filth (scavengers).

Broiled Salmon is so easy to make and cooks in five minutes!


Pre-heat oven on “Broil”. Rinse Salmon with cool water (both sides). Lightly squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fillets. Sprinkle with salt and Italian Seasoning. Flip over and repeat. Top with thinly sliced garlic. Broil about five-ten minutes (depending on the thickness).
