Broiled Salmon with Yogurt, Citrus and Warm Spices
A simple mixture of Greek yogurt, spices and citrus zest does double duty when it is slathered onto salmon fillets before broiling; the yogurt sticks the seasonings to the fish for maximum flavor impact while also helping with caramelization. A bit more of the yogurt mixture then is stirred with citrus juice to make a tangy, creamy sauce for drizzling onto the fillets just before serving. Baharat is a Middle Eastern spice blend; it’s sold in spice shops and many well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find it, simply use an equal amount of ground cumin or coriander, or ½ teaspoon of each. Complete the meal with a leafy salad and rice pilaf.
6-ounce salmon fillets, each about 1-inch thick
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
01Heat the broiler with a rack about 6 inches from the element. Lightly coat a broiler-safe rimmed baking sheet with oil. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, 2 teaspoons of the oil, the baharat, turmeric, cloves, lime zest and a pinch of salt. Measure 2 tablespoons of the mixture into another small bowl, then smear the remainder onto all sides of the salmon. Place the fillets skin side down on the prepared baking sheet and broil until spotty brown and the flesh flakes easily, 4 to 6 minutes; transfer to individual plates. Stir the lime juice and the remaining 1 teaspoon oil into the reserved yogurt mixture and drizzle onto the salmon. Serve with lime wedges.

This was very simple, fast, and tasty - used lemons instead of lime and the cumin/coriander combo. Would the same work for halibut fillets? Will try and report back.
