Glazed Salmon~

Salmon is one of the few seafoods I can get Bill to eat, so this was our Ash Wednesday entree.  This recipe comes together quickly…and the sweet, salty and citrus flavors marry well in this simple marinade and glaze.  My youngest took his courtesy bite….but rounded out his meal with a peanut butter sandwich….you can’t win them all!

This would also be fabulous grilled on a cedar plank…one of my favorite ways to cook salmon.

Glazed Salmon…adapted from Everyday Food

4 salmon fillets (6-8 ounces each)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons dry white wine
Lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 400º.

Combine brown sugar, olive oil, soy, lemon juice and white wine.  Stir to dissolve sugar.

Place salmon fillets in a baking dish.  Pour glaze over salmon and turn to coat.  Let marinate 10-20 minutes, turning at least once.

Bake to your desired doneness (ours took about 15 minutes), basting every few minutes with glaze.  Serve with lemon wedges and a drizzle of glaze if desired.



  1. Looks great, Lizzy. Salmon is a favourite around here. As a matter of fact, we had stuffed salmon last night for dinner. I’ll put this in the list to try next. It sounds simple and delish.


  2. Salmon is my favorite fish. I love the simplicity of your recipe.

  3. Often the most simple meals are the best! Thanks for sharing Liz!

  4. Yum Liz… simple, easy to make and delicious. I think I will try this soon… salmon is the only fish that my eldest daughter eats!!! So I am always looking out for new ideas! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Looks absolutely delicious 🙂

  9. Ha, that’s something my kids would do! I used to tell them that if they didn’t like the food, they’d have to eat cereal. But, I’d have to have sugar-free cereal on hand so it wasn’t so tempting, hehe. Thankfully my kids love salmon and we’re making it tonight! Lovely recipe, Lizzy. Sounds refreshing! Beautiful photo too!

    Lizzy-Your salmon looks like the exact replica of what Lora made the last time, and will make it again today. We all love salmon, even the little ones. Yours turned out so perfect and yummy with the glaze.
    The marinade time and baking time is great, except when the salmon is a little thinner, baking time takes 12 minutes!

    so many things I want to cook and yet never do. I’m rarely home much before 7pm, along with a hungry toddler and starving husband not far behind. Their simply isn’t time for fancy things mid week. It’s got to either be a fast fix (this is ideal) or very long slow cook (in the slow cooker when I go out to work in the morning

    thanks for sharing


  16. I am always looking for another salmon recipe. Can’t wait to try this one, Liz!

  17. I love salmon but haven’t had it in forever. Yours look so good! I would love it for dinner! 🙂

  18. Wow. Love it. Simple & refreshing – a nice change up from the heavy dishes of winter.
