Bourbon Glazed Salmon

It’s not always easy to find new recipes for fish and seafood dishes. I just recently found this one, and it’s amazing. As usual it’s pretty easy, and it’s from the Cooking Light series of recipes. It’s just what you need to keep up that bikini figure, or, if you’re like me, try to attain one!

What you’ll need:

  • 4 (6 oz) Salmon fillets
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely sliced green onions
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted


Combine brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, garlic and black pepper in a bowl, and then transfer it to a plastic bag. Add the fish to the bag  and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally.

Heat large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray or          vegetable oil. Add fish and marinade to the pan. Cook the fish 4 minutes on each side, or until desired doneness. Remove from the pan, and remove the skin (unless of course you cooked it without the skin). Drizzle sauce from the pan over each serving. Top off with green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Serve with white, brown, Jasmine or sticky rice!

Bon Apetit

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
