Sweet-Spicy Glazed Salmon


I thought I'd share a recipe with you I made for dinner last night. I was surfing the internet the other night when I found this. I scribbled the recipe on a piece of paper, and forgot to note where it came from. Sorry about that.

The salmon turned out really good. It was cooked perfectly, and the glaze on top was perfect. Very sweet, but I still really liked it. And it's a nice calorie count too. Makes me think this recipe might have come from Cooking Light.

Sweet-Spicy Glazed Salmon
4 servings

3 tablespoons dark brown sugar (I used light brown)
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
4 teaspoons Chinese-style hot mustard (I didn't have any, so I used a combination of powdered mustard and powdered wasabi)
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
Cooking Spray (I used olive oil instead)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine first 4 ingredients in saucepan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. (Another direction I didn't follow. I just stirred everything together.)

Place fish on foil-lined jelly roll pan. Coat with cooking spray (or oil). Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove from oven.

Preheat broiler. Brush sugar mixture evenly over salmon; broil 3 inches from heat 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily. Do not overcook.

That's it! A fast, flavorful dinner for the family.

Cindy, I have a similar recipe that is good so must try this one. Thanks. Sure wish there was a print button on ST blogs. But, not on blogger blogs either.

Jane-It would be nice to have an easier way to print. I just do the cut and paste to word, then print. I liked this recipe because it wasn't as salty as others I've had. Did one for Ina Garten which we couldn't even eat it was so salty. It had somewhere around 1/2 cup of soy sauce rather than the 1 tablespoon this recipe has. Cindy

It has to be Cooking Light--all of their recipes include "cooking spray." Sounds really good!

Barb Cabot:

Sounds right up my alley. Will try for sure. Thanks for sharing.
