The Best Salmon Ever

March 7, 2011

Last night, Michael was out of town, so we didn’t have our usual steak, wine, and popcorn Sunday.

Since the tradition isn’t the same without him, I made a modification.

Bring on the salmon!

I found the original recipe here, and after reading some of the reviews, I decided to modify the recipe based on one reviewer’s recommendation.  The result?

This is potentially the best salmon that I’ve ever had- and I’ve had A LOT of salmon!  It was so flavorful and moist…and just pure deliciousness.

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

(Adapted from here)

Ingredients (for one serving)
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 (6 ounce) boneless salmon fillet
½ teaspoon whiskey
¼ teaspoon lemon juice
½ garlic clove

Preheat the oven’s broiler and prepare the rack of a broiler pan with cooking spray. Whisk together the brown sugar, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, whiskey, and garlic 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 to 15 minutes.

The mushrooms were cooked in minced garlic and soy sauce and were also very yummy.

After my dinner for one, I watched Life As We Know It and had some popcorn (which I shared with Emma).  The movie got poor reviews, but I thought it was cute!


This morning, I knew that I wanted oatmeal and decided to clobber it with nearly every piece of fruit in the house.

After I finish this bowl of fruity oatmeal, I’m off to tackle my to do list.

Have a great day!

    The fruit bowl looks fantastic! I’m drooling at work over it! 🙂

      It was really good! I ate it too fast and want to eat it all over again! 🙂

    My mom makes something very similar for salmon – I LOVE it!! 🙂

    That sounds delish. I bought a huge piece of salmon for my husband and I to eat today. I usually make ours with just a few spices and a bit of lemon. I think I will do this today and sub honey for the sugar.

      The honey would probably be great too! I thought of using it, but at the last moment, I decided to try it another time. Let me know how it works! 🙂

    I have salmon on the menu tonight, I may just have to give this recipe a try (minus the whiskey, since we don’t have any).

      Definitely try it! The original recipe called for just the Dijon and brown sugar, if that helps. 🙂

    Sometimes it’s really nice to make a nice meal all for yourself. 🙂

      I totally agree. It was kind of fun treating myself to a nice meal. 🙂
