Bourbon Glazed Salmon
Placed among the extravagant dishes, salmon is a fish everyone likes to order from time to time. Make sure you check out this lovely dish, and try to follow the steps carefully to create an astonishing meal for yourself, family, or friends.
What you need:
- 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-ounces) skinless salmon fillets
- Cooking spray
- 1 sprig of rosemary
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
Mix the first 7 ingredients (that's the brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, garlic and black pepper for those who can't count) in a large zip-lock bag. Place the salmon in the bag and seal it (obviously...) and leave it in the fridge to marinate for about an hour and half, turning occasionally to evenly coat the fish. When it's done, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat the pan with cooking spray (or your preferred cooking lubricant). Dump the entire contents of the plastic baggy into the skillet - fish, marinade and all, and cook for 4 minutes on each side or until the salmon is flaky. Place 1 fillet on its own plate, we've used the 10.75" square black plastic dinner plates from smartyhadaparty.com, and drizzle each serving with 2 teaspoons of sauce. Sprinkle each one with fresh rosemary and 3/4 teaspoons sesame seeds.
