Bourbon-Glazed Salmon

Bourbon Glazed Salmon

Recipe: Bourbon Glazed Salmon


  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


  1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish and marinade to pan; cook fish 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
  3. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates; drizzle each serving with about 2 teaspoons sauce. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon green onions and 3/4 teaspoon sesame seeds.

Personal Notes

If you are in a rush, you can decrease the marinade time to 15 minutes, but longer is better.

The marinate is slightly on the sweet side. Next time, I am going to decrease the brown sugar by half.

You’ll probably have left ofter ginger root. Make Candied Ginger out of it.

Number of servings (yield): 4
