Honey - Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

It is the second Friday in Lent and time for fish!  This week, Salmon is on the menu.  With its high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids and low levels of mercury, this fish is one worth eating.  I cooked this dish on the stove and then in the oven but with grilling season knocking on our doors, it is also a dish that would cook well on your Weber!  You can serve this dish with almost any rice, quinoa or couscous. But, it really shines with a Black or Red Rice. 

Honey-Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

1/8 C brown sugar
1/4 C honey
1/2 t salt
1/4 t garlic powder
2-3 T rice oil
1 1-lb salmon filet
1 t salt
1 t garlic powder

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Mix the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl to form a glaze.
  3. Cut the salmon filet in to serving size portions.
  4. Sprinkle the top side of the salmon filets with 1 t salt and 1 t garlic powder.
  5. Heat an oven safe skillet on the stove top on medium-high heat.
  6. Generously grease the bottom of the skillet with rice oil.
  7. Place the salmon filets skin-side up in the hot skillet.
  8. Allow to cook without touching until the fish easily comes up from the bottom of the pan.
  9. Remove from fire, flip the fish and pour the glaze over the fish pieces.  If the glaze will not pour well.  Microwave for a few seconds to melt it slightly then finish pouring it over the fish.
  10. Place the skillet in the oven until the fish flakes apart and glaze begins caramelizing.
  11. Remove from oven and serve over Black Wild Rice with Sauteed Rainbox Swiss Chard.
