Glazed Salmon

This glazed salmon can be plated with a side salad for a light lunch or served at an elegant dinner party. You can prepare this dish and pop it in the oven in a matter of minutes so it won’t keep you slaving in the kitchen when you have company. Country Sweet Sauce, hot or mild, creates a perfect glaze that compliments the rich taste of Atlantic salmon perfectly. The whiskey just kicks everything up another notch!

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 large Atlantic salmon fillet, cut into 4 equal portions
  • sprinkle of salt
  • grinding of pepper
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • ½ C Country Sweet Sauce (hot or mild)
  • ¼ C whiskey

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

  1. In a small saucepan combine the Country Sweet Sauce and whiskey. Bring to a boil on high heat and then turn down and let simmer until the sauce reduces and thickens up (about 4 or 5 minutes). Set aside until later.
  2. Make sure to remove any bones along the centre of the salmon fillet. I use small needle nose pliers for this job. Cut the filet into four equal portions.
  3. Place the salmon portions on a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil, skin side down.
  4. Squeeze the juice from the lemon over the salmon, being careful to remove any seeds that may escape
  5. Baste the fish with ¼ C of the Country Sweet Sauce/whiskey mixture reserving the rest for later.
  6. Place the salmon in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and baste with the last ¼ C of the Country Sweet Sauce/whiskey mixture.
  8. Move the oven rack up to the top quarter of the oven and turn on the broiler before returning the salmon to the oven.
  9. Watch the fish closely as it broils for the last few minutes, removing it when the sauce becomes a golden brown and the salmon is glazed perfectly.

Serve immediately.
