This was an absolutely delicious glaze! I will definitely use it again. Keep an eye on your broiler, though %u2013 mine runs hot, even for a broiler, so I only ended up cooking the filet for four minutes, by which point the glaze was well-browned and the filet was cooked to about medium, which is my preferred doneness for good salmon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, a dash of red pepper flakes, garlic and lime juice in a nonreactive saucepan.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the sauce forms a glaze.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Preheat the broiler.
  5. Place the salmon on a broiler pan and baste with the sauce.
  6. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  7. Broil them until cooked through, about 8 minutes, basting again with the glaze.
  8. Remove the salmon from the heat and baste once more with the glaze before serving.
