When the convenience of toaster-oven cooking meets the mild flavor and nutritional benefits of salmon, you've got a heart-healthy meal on the table in under 20 minutes. Though frequently associated with bread and bagels, this convenient counter-top appliance can handle almost every job of a full-size oven, except on a smaller scale. Broiling salmon in the toaster oven saves energy since these miniature ovens use a fraction of the energy compared to full-size ovens. Serve up a savory salmon dinner without heating up the whole kitchen in the process.
