This is one of the recipes I pulled off my Pinterest board- Food for Foodies, Garlic Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon.
Like everyone else I have tried so many recipes for Salmon. I mostly gravitate to barbecuing salmon because of the nice grilled marks on them make them look so appealing.
BUT….. it is has been so cold here I would not even think about stepping out the door and going 5 steps to turn on the BBQ. So, the biggest appeal to the Garlic Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon is because it is cooked in the oven and doesn’t need to be marinated.
Generally, I buy an enormous salmon at Costco and then cut it in serving size pieces. Then, I put them in plastic sealed bags in the freezer.
I label each bag with the date because food in my freezer gets very disorganized.
In the image it shows the ingredients and you can see it is pretty basic. The only thing that took time was cutting up the garlic. If you want to shorten up the prep time you could use pre-cut garlic out of a jar. This is super fast to get ready. No need to marinate.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
When cooling a really big salmon you should cut it in serving sizes because it is so much easier to cut it now than when it is cooked. I only made a serving for two but this recipe is good for serving of 4 or 2 pounds of salmon. The servings do not have to be that big as salmon is quite filling.
Take a relatively big piece of tin foil and lay it on a cookie sheet. Place the salmon pieces on the foil. Add salt and pepper.
Fold up the edges of the foil to create a pocket.
In a bowl ( I used the measuring cup I used for the soy sauce) add olive oil, sugar, soy sauce, garlic and lemon juice and mix together.
Pour the glaze over the salmon.
Add another piece of foil on top crimping the sides together so it is sealed.
Because the salmon is nicely sealed in a bed of tin foil, the moisture of the glaze keeps the salmon from drying out.
Bake 20 -25 minutes until salmon is cooked. ( Do NOT over cook!)
Remove the top tin foil piece and spoon the glaze over the salmon.
Broil for 3-5 minutes until the glaze gets a little syrupy /thicker.
Time to serve with a little lemon as a garnish. If you have parsley then sprinkle it on top for some colour.
I served the salmon on a bed of greens. This was one of my healthier dinners of the week. ( I am choosing to forget about the brown sugar in the glaze!)
This is recipe requires such little prep time you may want to whip up Lemon Mousse for dessert.
