A light, fresh-tasting glaze for salmon filets. Quick and tasty, my kind of meal! Delicious with seasoned rice and served with lemon wedges. Try to have all the filets the same size so they cook evenly.
- 1⁄4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons dry white wine or 2 tablespoons water
- 4 -6 salmon fillets
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Mix glaze ingredients together, stirring until dissolved. Marinate fish filets for at least 30 minutes.
- Arrange salmon, skin-side down, in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil & lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Brush glaze on all sides of fish.
- Bake approximately 15-20 minutes, basting once with pan sauces. Fish is done when it flakes easily and center is cooked through.
I thought this was absolutely delicious- fast, easy, tasty. No complaints here at all! I left out the water/wine as the other poster said the glaze was a bit thin. Marinated the filets (I had two so scaled back the rest of the ingredients) for a few hours and it turned out wonderfully. I also added a bit of fresh grated ginger.
This is a wonderful recipe! This was the first time I had made salmon. I followed the recipe to the T (I used the entire 1/4 cup of olive oil) and it turned out well. Good flavor! Thanks for posting it!
I thought the recipe was good. The taste was very good, but the glaze was a bit thin and didn't really soak into the salmon while it was cooking. I would have loved to thicken-up the glaze a bit so it coated the salmon better. I added a little minced garlic to the recipe and even broiled the last few minutes to try to get a more crisp coat on the salmon...but it didn't work. Taste was good...but would have prefered a thicker coating after it was cooked.
