Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

It has been ages since I posted a seafood dish, mostly because I haven’t found any recipes that I’ve wanted to try.  So, I was excited to find this salmon recipe with only six ingredients.  The bonus was that Martha Stewart promised it would only take 30 minutes to make.    I scaled back the proportions in my recipe below because I found that Martha’s made way too much glaze for my two smaller salmon fillets as her recipe calls for 2 pounds of salmon.  You can see in my picture that they’re drowning a bit; you want yours to be coated but not as saturated as mine were.    I served the salmon with a heaping side of roasted brussel sprouts and hot sauce.  True to Martha’s word, dinner was ready in less than 30 minutes and it was delicious.

What to buy (serves 2):

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine
  • 2 salmon filles
  • salt and pepper, to taste

What to do:

  • preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • stir brown sugar, olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, and white wine until the sugar has dissolved
  • lay salmon skin side down, in a single layer in a baking dish
  • pour glaze over the fish, and turn to coat evenly
  • bake until fish is opaque but still bright pink inside, basting every few minutes with glaze from baking dish, 15 to 20 minutes
  • sprinkle on some lemon juice before serving or serve with lemon wedges on the side
