  1. 1 of 6 Set an oven rack 6 inches from heat source (usually the second rack position, not the one closest to heat source) and turn on broiler.
  2. 2 of 6 Brush salmon all over with oil and season lightly with salt.
  3. 3 of 6 In a 12-inch oven-safe skillet set over medium-high, combine brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, ginger, lime zest and juice, black pepper and 1 tbsp water. Bring to a simmer.
  4. 4 of 6 Place fish, skin side up, in skillet. Reduce heat to low and simmer, without moving fillets, until fish is halfway cooked, 4 to 6 minutes.
  5. 5 of 6 Spoon pan juices over fish and transfer skillet to oven. Broil until fish is just cooked through and skin is caramelized in spots, 2 to 5 minutes for medium-rare, depending on thickness of fish.
  6. 6 of 6 Transfer fish to a plate and garnish with scallions, jalapeno and cilantro. Drizzle with pan sauce.
