I set off the fire alarm at for the first time in our new place when I got to the broiling part of this recipe. We learned that the fire alarm is wired in to the hall ceiling- no battery. This means husband has to fan at the thing while attempting to tolerate the noise. The sauce ran all over the pan and burned. This is why I HIGHLY recommend bringing up the foil around the fish to make a pool, have not tried it yet but you would not have quite the thin layer all over the pan to burn quickly.
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons wasabi (us less if you prefer less spicy)
- 3 -4 teaspoons mustard (I used brown mustard)
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb salmon fillet (multiple fillets or a side fillet)
- cooking spray
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- Combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, wasabi, mustard and rice vinegar in a small sauce pan, bring to a boil then set aside.
- Line a baking sheet with foil, spray with cooking spray, place salmon on foil.
- Carefully scrunch the foil up around the salmon to create a wall all the way around. (This is important in the broiling part).
- Bake at 425 for 13-14 minutes.
- Take salmon out of oven, move oven rack to broil position (In my experience thats the top position in the oven) and turn oven temperature to Broil.
- Pour sugar and soy sauce mixture over fish, hopefully it all stays in the walls you created.
- Broil for 3 minutes or until flaky. Hopefully you do not set off the fire alarm.
