{Recipe} Brown Sugar Glazed Grilled Salmon

How is it only Tuesday? Seriously, it feels like Thursday.  Anyways, last week I shared with ya'll a recipe for the best recipe for filet (catch up here.)  In that post, I mentioned picking up some fresh fish while I was at the fancy grocery store. I love salmon, but I do get nervous where I buy it from. Anyone else have that feeling?

During the work week, I'm always looking for a quick recipe that doesn't involve chicken (it just bores me) & doesn't take a lot of effort.  Well I've found my solution. This dish was AH-MAZING.  It was so easy to throw together & was so DELICIOUS.  Making fish was always something I steered away from because I thought I'd screw it up.  This recipe is just about fool proof.  Our grill is currently out of commission, so we've been subbing in a grill pan & let me tell you, it is SO easy to use. So don't fret if you don't have a grill!  You could also totally sear the fish in a frying pan as well. The original recipe calls for marinating the fish for 1-2 hours ahead of time. I only marinated it for about 15 mins & it tasted great, so I can imagine just how much better it would be if it was marinated longer. Guess I'll just have to make it again & see!

Serves: 2
Cook time: 30 mins (plus 1-2 hours of marinating time, but you can skip this part)
How difficult was this recipe: Easy?

2 Salmon filets (2-3 ounces a piece)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Splash of garlic powder
Splash of salt
Splash of pepper


Season filets with salt, pepper & garlic powder

In a small mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, water & vegetable oil until the sugar is fully dissolved.

Place fish in a large resealable bag & pour in brown sugar sauce. Turn fish around in bag until fully coated. Refrigerate for 2 hours (or less if you don't have time time, but aim for at least 15 mins. I promise it will still taste good!)

Coat grill pan with nonstick spray & let the pan heat up just a bit using medium heat.  

Remove fish from marinade & place on grill pan.  Discard marinade. (If you chose not to marinate the fish for more than 15 mins, don't trash the marinade quite yet)

Grill the fish for 6-8 mins per each side. If you chose not to marinade the fish for longer than 15 mins, sprinkle a little of the marinade on each side for extra flavor.

Serve immediately & enjoy!
