Asian Glazed Salmon

Dinner a few nights back…


  • 1.5 lbs fresh salmon, skin on
  • 1/3 c. soy sauce
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2-3 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • salt & pepper

Bring all ingredients (except salmon) to a boil in a small sauce pan. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce forms into a thicker glaze (approx 15-20 min). Put salmon in a 9×13 pan lined with aluminum foil. Top with 1/2 glaze mixture and let it sit on salmon for 15 min while you pre-heat the oven to 450. Bake for 15-20 min then broil for 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness). My fish was about 2.5 inches thick. Just watch it! I pulled the dish out of the oven a few times during the baking process and spooned the glaze back on the top of the fish. I suppose this might be called “basting”? 🙂

When the fish is fully cooked, take a spatula and remove it from the skin. Top with remaining glaze. I had to add some water to my glaze b/c when it cooled, it thickened a bit too much!

I served this with brown butter couscous (from the latest issue of cooking light) … essentially brown the butter, toss in some pine nuts, then saute the couscous for a minute before adding in the chicken stock. YUM. So good!!
