Sweet & Spicy Glazed Salmon

Sweet & Spicy Glazed Salmon

I’ve always been kind of afraid to cook new types of fish, mostly for fear of not cooking it enough or over cooking and drying out an expensive fillet. I also don’t want to end up whipping up some disgusting sauce that ruins what could have been a perfectly cooked fish. Luckily for me, I have found a go to salmon recipe, not only does the fish come out perfectly cooked every time, but the sauce is the perfect balance of sweet with a little bit of spice. If I haven’t sold you on the recipe yet, it’s HEALTHY! I normally pair this bad boy with a helping of roasted brussels sprouts and some kale sautéed in coconut oil. After eating this dinner, I always feel full, but not that gross too stuffed to move full. Final elevator pitch: not only is the recipe easy to follow, it takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish, including oven preheating time! If that doesn’t convince you, you must not be a fish person, because there is no other reason not to try this sweet and spicy glazed salmon recipe immediately.

Sweet & Spicy Glazed Salmon

1 lb salmon fillet
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
3 teaspoons spicy mustard
1 teaspoon rice vinegar

Sweet & Spicy Glazed Salmon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lay salmon on a foil lined pan and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 12 minutes.

Combine last four ingredients in a saucepan and let it come to a boil. Once the sauce has boiled, remove from heat and set aside.

Once the salmon is done, remove from the oven and preheat the oven to broil. Drizzle the sauce over the salmon and broil for 3-4 minutes.
