I’m at it again with my salmon. Publix had their wild caught U.S. Salmon on sale again so I stocked up! I am coming up with new recipes and for this meal I made a delicious brown sugar salmon sauce.   I bought 2 good-sized salmon filets and cut them in half, making enough for 4 meals for me. It figured out to be about $3.00 per meal for the salmon, cheaper than a burger!  Since hubby isn’t a salmon lover, I surprise him with something else, today it was steak stir fry.

The brown sugar sauce is so easy, all I did was mix 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter together and microwaved to melt the butter.  I love the salmon I got because it has the skin on it and to me that is as delicious as the salmon. I brown the skin side then flip it and brown the other side.

It only takes a few minutes to cook and then I flip it back on the skin side down. I spread my delicious brown sugar salmon sauce on top of the side without skin, covered the pan for a few minutes and let it bubble away!

While the salmon was finishing cooking, I made some rice to go with my dinner. How quick and easy is that?  The entire meal, including the stir fry I whipped up for hubby took less than 20 minutes. My delicious brown sugar salmon sauce was a close tie to the berry sauce I made a few weeks ago.  The skin was so brown and crunchy and the brown sugar flavor went through the salmon.

I have three pieces of salmon left, I wonder what kind of sauce I will come up with next.  One of my readers sent me her favorite recipe made with balsamic vinegar and brown sugar and my granddaughter who works as a chef suggested an orange rosemary glaze.  Both sound delicious so I’m sure you’ll be hearing more salmon toppings soon.

Beside salmon tasting delicious, it also has many health benefits including a good source of vitamins, proteins and minerals, helps maintains insulin levels in your body, reduces the risk of cancers and cardiovascular disease plus omega-3 fatty acids and amino acids help to prevent macular degeneration and loss of vision and fatigue of the eyes.

This is another sauce I made for my salmon, it’s a blackberry/raspberry blend and oh so good!

    I’m having such a good time coming up with different sauces Alana. I love brown sugar and made candied bacon with it too! Thanks for visiting.

    Let me know what you think of it Kathleen! Thanks for visiting.

  5. I have not tried brown sugar. I do use butter-mustard-white wine and, duck sauce-teriyaki-red wine. My sides are always rice and sweet potato (with cumin).

    That’s sounds delicious Roy, I had always used just butter and lemon but lately trying now ideas. My sides are the same as yours, but rice is my favorite with salmon. Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
