Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon


I love salmon! My favorite way to eat salmon is Horseradish Encrusted Salmon, but this recipe is a very close second. It is so fast and easy. Even my kids love this one. Serve this up with some broccoli and a baked sweet potato and you have a delicious and healthy meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 salmon fillet (1 pound)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

Directions

  • Cut salmon widthwise into four pieces. Place in a foil-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, mustard and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Brush evenly over salmon. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 4 servings.

  6. We love us some salmon but they (the other four in my family) don't want to stray from the Ol' Bay rub their Dad uses to make ours! Grrr! Guess I'll just make my own so I can give this a try!

  14. I have recently come to really like salmon. I used to only like halibut in the whole seafood category. Salmon is now second. And those are the only two fish I really like.
    Yum to this one! My kids even like salmon, too! (Which is odd considering all the things I make that they don't like!)
