Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

I don't cook much fish around here.   There are a few family members that just aren't huge fans.  Chris loves just about anything... but he doesn't love salmon.   I decided to try it.  Meg and I both enjoy it and I was hoping to sway Chris.  We all enjoyed this yummy recipe!  Well - everyone except Jenna - who won't even try it.

A preschool teacher found this recipe on allrecipes.com.  It was quick and easy and I served it with roasted green beans, onions and grape tomatoes.

I used one large piece of salmon with the skin.  I put it on a piece of foil and Chris cooked it on the grill.  The skin burns to the foil and you slide the salmon right off.  This allrecipes.com version uses the broiler which I will try next time.  I actually think their version looks a little tastier!


Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
4 ( 6 oz) boneless salmon fillets
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat broiler and the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.  Spray the rack of the broiler pan with cooking spray.  Season the salmon with salt and pepper and arrange onto the prepared broiler pan.  Whisk together the brown sugar and the mustard in a small bowl.  Spoon mixture evenly onto top of salmon fillets.  Cook under the preheated broiler until the fish flakes easily with a fork - 10-15 minutes.

Suggestion - put a little water in broiler pan for steam
