Salmon in Bourbon and Soy Sauce


Well I guess it was about time that I post a salmon recipe. I have been hearing from many of you that you have used and overused some of my recipes and are ready for new ones. This one is very easy and only uses ingredients that you have in your pantry i am sure;-)

Ingredients for 2:

  • 1/4 tbsp of bourbon
  • 1/4 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1/4 tbs of dark brown sugar
  • salt
  • pepper
  • salmon for 2

In a small saucepan, mix together the first 3 ingredients, and bring the mixture to boil. Let it simmer for a few minutes until it reduces and becomes thicker.

If you have time, try to marinade the salmon for a few minutes. But if you do not have time, then place the salmon on a silpat or a flexipat and with a pastry brush, brush the salmon with the sauce. Cook the salmon for 5-7 minutes for a small filet or 13-15 for a large one. I like my salmon medium-rare.

You can  use half of the sauce to marinade the salmon for a few hours or only for a few minutes ( 30 minutes), or use it right away as I did this evening. 

When serving, place the salmon on individual plates. Drizzle some of the sauce over the fish.

I served the salmon with steamed brocoli slaw and basil mashed potatoes.

Quick and yummy!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
