Irish Roasted Salmon

READY IN: 1hr 12mins
Recipe by Leslie

Salmon fillets marinated in Irish whiskey and honey have a glazed look as well as a superb taste and texture. Irish whiskey has a slightly peppery taste. A delicious combination! From Food and Drink. Prep time includes marinating time.

Very good and easy. I was skeptical about the need for the Irish Whiskey (I didn't think you'd be able to taste it), but it was there -- a very subtle and nice flavor. (And I don't like whiskey at all...) We only marinated ours for about 40 minutes because we were in a rush but it was still delicious. Thanks Leslie!
