If you cook will love this recipe!

I used to grill salmon, but not in the winter so I went on a search for a good salmon recipe that I could cook in the oven. I love this recipe so much that I use it year round. It can be made for dinner, but Mark and I really like it served on a bed of fresh spinach as a salad.Let me know what you think!

Garlic Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon by Alyssa Rivers


1-2 lbs. salmon

Juice of 1 lemon

2 Tablespoons olive

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup soy sauce

3 garlic cloves minced

lemon slices and chopped Italian parsley (if desired)

Have a box of fresh spinach hand if you want to make a salad


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lay the salmon on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold the sides of the aluminum foil around the salmon, but not covering them.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour this glaze over the salmon. Top the salmon with aluminum foil and seal around the corners.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until salmon is cooked throughout. Remove from the oven and then turn the oven to broil. Next, take the foil off the top and-basted the salmon with the sauce in the foil. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until it is brown and caramelized. Garnish with lemon slices and chopped parsley before serving. (This recipe get bonus points for easy clean up in the kitchen!)

Second Option: Salmon and Spinach Salad

One night, I decided to put fresh spinach in bowls and then broke up the salmon into chunks on top of the spinach. I add cucumber, strawberries, almonds and cherry tomatoes. I then pour the brown sugar glaze over the salmon and spinach. Serve with crackers. Light, and delicious.
