- Turn your oven on to a high broil. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking oil.
- Remove salmon from marinade and place on the prepared baking sheet. Place pan in the oven 6 inches from the broiler and cook for 7-9 minutes until the salmon is light pink and cooked through.
- To make the dressing: in the food processor, puree the chutney and vinegar.
