  • 4 salmon fillets 6 oz. (170g) each, skin on
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (use reduced sodium for less salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper , to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • For the glaze: In a small saucepan, combine the bourbon, sugar, soy sauce, garlic and mustard. Bring to a boil and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, or until reduced by half. Remove from heat and let sit to thicken.
  • Pat salmon fillets dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Lay the salmon skin side down on a lightly oiled wire rack set over a baking sheet (to catch the drips). If you don't have a rack, a baking sheet will work just fine. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or so, depending on the size of your fish. When the salmon is nearly done, turn the broiler on in your oven. With a food brush, spread the glaze on top of the salmon. Be generous with your glaze!
  • Return to the oven and broil (not too close to heat) for about 30 seconds. Watch carefully that glaze doesn't burn. Repeat the process: take out the salmon, brush with more of the glaze and broil for a few seconds. Remove from oven.
  • Arrange the fillets on each plate and drizzle each serving with the remaining glaze. Enjoy!
