Asian Glazed Salmon Recipe

I am not a seafood lover… or eater for that matter.  I never liked seafood whatsoever until my husband and I moved to San Francisco.  We were walking on the pier one day and decided to have dinner at Bubba Gump’s.  I usually would have ran in the other direction of a seafood restaurant, but I was starving, so I gave in.  With not a whole lot on the menu but fish, I decided to try a shrimp sampler.  Oh. My. Goodness.  It was amazing!  Sure, half of the shrimp was covered in coconut and deep fried, but it was a start!
 I have occasionally had shrimp here and there since we returned to Utah and finally decided to venture out in the world of seafood.  I thought that I would be able to eat salmon if it were smothered in a delicious sauce, and this glazed salmon did the trick!  Who knows?  Maybe I am finally maturing!  This salmon is definitely worth trying!

Asian Glazed Salmon Recipe:
(Makes 4 servings)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 Tablespoons ginger, peeled and grated
Dried red pepper flakes, to taste
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon lime juice
4 (1-2 pound) boneless, skinless salmon fillets
In a medium saucepan, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, red pepper flakes, garlic and lime juice.  Bring to a boil over medium heat until sauce thickens (between 5-10 minutes).  Set aside.  Preheat the broiler to high.  Place salmon in a foil lined baking dish.  Baste with glaze and broil for 4 minutes.  Remove salmon from the oven, turn over, baste with glaze and return to the oven to broil for 4 more minutes.  Remove the salmon from the oven and glaze one more time before serving.

    I don’t usually like Salmon, but I’ve only tried it once or twice so I’m wondering if I should give it more of a chance. It might be one of those times where “you just need to cook it right.”

    But this recipe sounds like it’d be great with Mahi Mahi too! Do you like Mahi? Check out this amazing recipe over on my blog ( for Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi. I didn’t like fish either until I met my husband and then I started venturing out into the fish world. It’s a work in progress! The ginger glaze recipe might be great on salmon too!

    Oooohhhh. This recipe looks amazing! I try to make fish at least once a week at my house and salmon is a favorite! I love the ingredients for your sauce. I just pinned this and can’t wait to make a trip to the store to make it! I love the revamped look of your blog by the way ladies! Looking fabulous as always :) Krista @ A Handful of Everything

    Thanks for the great recipe. It sounds delish and I’ve been looking for a good recipe for salmon that would have a great taste. My husband loves salmon but I’m not a fish person. The only one I’ve liked was catfish and mahi mahi. Hoping this will make it so I like salmon. I’ve heard its all in the recipe and how its prepared. The first time I had salmon wasn’t that great. I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like fish all that much, LOL

    Look for red / sockeye slamon – not pink – will make all the difference in the world if you like salmon or not!
    Can’t wait to try this sounds simple and marvelous!
