Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

This is a pretty straightforward marinade/glaze but it's my favorite way to prepare salmon.  I served it with a simple spinach salad (dried pomegranate seeds, crumbled goat cheese, and almonds).  Enjoy!

What You Need:
Salmon (I usually only prepare it for two people but this makes quite a bit of marinade so feel free to use the same recipe even if prepping for 4-6 people)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce (gluten free)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup water
2-3 cloves garlic
Salt & pepper, to taste

What To Do:
1. Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, water, and garlic with a whisk until the sugar dissolves and all ingredients are fully incorporated.
2. Season the salmon with salt & pepper.  Place in a resealable plastic bag (like a Ziplock bag or something).
3. Pour in the marinade over the fish, seal the bag, and let sit in the fridge for at least 3 hours (I've left it for as long as 5 hours before).
4. After at least 3 hours, preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Remove salmon from the plastic bag and place in a cooking dish (either a non-stick dish or one sprayed with cooking spray).
5. Pour some of the marinade over the fish and cook for about 12 minutes.
6. Increase oven to Broil and cook for an additional 5 minutes (this makes the brown sugar caramelize and gives the fish golden crispy outer edges).  Remove from oven, serve, and enjoy!



  1. yum! i actually made a salmon very similar to this last night, except i used lemon pepper powder instead of real lemon juice!

  2. I love the tang the fresh lemon juice gives it to contrast the sweet brown sugar, but lemon pepper sounds like it would be really good too!
