Spicy-Sweet Glazed Salmon

"I looked for a recipe for glazed salmon and didn't find one that used the ingredients I had on hand. So I threw together what I had and came up with this tangy, spicy sweet marinade that adds flavor, but doesn't mask the flavor of the salmon. My kids and sister loved it. They said it was better than 'restaurant salmon' It's great served with wild rice and stir fried veggies."

  1. Place salmon in a shallow, flat dish, and set aside. Combine the vinegar, olive oil, soy sauce, water, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, cilantro, and brown sugar in a blender. Blend until brown sugar dissolves. Pour the marinade over the salmon to cover evenly. Cover the dish, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  2. Line a broiling pan with foil. Remove salmon from marinade, and place on prepared broiling pan; season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer remaining marinade to a saucepan.
  3. Turn on broiler to low.
  4. Broil salmon about 6 inches from the heat for 5 minutes; brush with remaining marinade. Broil an additional 5 to 10 minutes, brushing 2 or 3 more times with additional marinade. Salmon is done when fish is no longer bright red and can be flaked with a fork.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the remaining marinade over low heat until it thickens and reduces by one-third, 5 to 10 minutes. Use cooked marinade as a dipping sauce or drizzle over salmon just before serving.

This recipe is delish! I added a dash of extra red chili flakes because we like spice. Served with carrots and rice, and it was definitely a hit.

Great recipe! Not too heavy but enough for an evening meal. We served it with egg noodles in a stir fry with springs onions. Added a hint of tabasco as well to give it a little kick as didn't ...

My family loved this simple salmon recipe. The glaze gave the salmon excellent flavor without being overpowering. I only needed to cook my salmon 10 minutes total, so be sure to keep an eye on...

One small change: baked slightly covered at 350°F for 20 minutes, then uncovered for an additional 10 min. (too afraid to broil fish). Turned out PERFECTand is a definite keeper for my family!

Yum Yum! I don't usually like fish, but this was really good. The leftovers are even better too as they've had more time to marinate in the sauce. I personally didn't notice the red pepper at al...

Made this w/ King Salmon..Yummo! I added a little maple syrup (the real kind) & additional brown sugar. (The soy smelled overpowering until I did that.) This would also be great grilled, too....

Very tasty - no leftovers. DH finished his portion and started on mine. 5 stars!

I doubled the red pepper, and excluded the salt & cilantro b/c I abhor cilantro & rarely use salt. I'm not sure that broiling would be my first choice as the fish came out a bit tough. However,...

We tried this with Tilapia, we've never really made fish before so didn't know what to expect. My husband really liked it, I thought it was great right out of the oven but after a few bites didn...
