Sugar & Spicy Glazed Salmon
Adapted from Taste of Home
Prep time: 5 minutes
Roast time: 15 minutes
4 individual servings salmon fillets, rinsed & patted dry
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Mirin or soy sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
1. Preheat the oven to 425F/220C and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
2. In a small pot mix all the rest of the ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil, stir and remove from heat.
3. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet, leaving space between each and baste with some of the sauce/glaze.
4. Roast for 10 minutes, uncovered, baste again and set the oven to broil, moving the tray closer to the top element for a lovely glaze. The salmon is ready when the fish flake.
I like to serve it over some dark green veg stir fry. This time with rapini, blanched, then diced and sauteed with chili pepper flakes & very thinly sliced garlic.
