DELICIOUS BROWN SUGAR SALMON SAUCE
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! http://themarthareview.com/super-delicious-salmon-sauce/
