Asian Glazed Salmon

Asian Glazed Salmon

  • Rating:


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and sliced ginger
  • dried red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds salmon fillets


Place the sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, dash of red pepper flakes, garlic, and lime juice in a medium nonreactive saucepan.

Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 15 minutes, or until the sauce forms a glaze. Set aside. Note that if you allow the glaze to cool too much, it will turn into thick toffee-like sludge and be impossible to use.

Preheat the broiler.

Place the salmon fillets on a broiler pan and baste with the sauce. Let sit for 10 minutes. Broil them until cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Remove the salmon from the heat and if you like, baste once more with the glaze before serving.
