Salmon with Ginger Glaze

Blog Top Shot Salmon

We enjoy salmon and this recipe is a favorite of ours.  It came from and I follow the directions exactly.  It’s simple and delicious.  A quick fix dinner that not only is great when you’re short on time, but also makes a beautiful presentation for dinner guests.  I’m always happy when I find a recipe that doesn’t tie me to the stove all night.

Salmon with Ginger Glaze

(Originally from


  • ¼ c packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh or 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 4 6-oz wild Pacific salmon fillets, about 1″ thick, skinned
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper


1. Coat rack of broiler pan with cooking spray. Preheat broiler.

2. In small bowl, whisk sugar, mustard, and ginger. Season both sides of fillets with salt and pepper. Place salmon on broiler rack and brush glaze on top. Broil (6″ from heat) 8 to 10 minutes or until fish is lightly browned and opaque.

3. Serve each fillet on top of a lightly dressed mixed green salad.

I used fresh ginger and grated it with my Microplane.  What a handy tool that thing is.  I also line my broiler pan with aluminum foil and poke holes in it for draining.  It’s an easier clean up, but you don’t have to do it that way.  I would recommend coating the cooking surface with some cooking oil spray even if you use the foil.

Make sure you watch the salmon closely so you don’t overcook it, but let it cook long enough to get that golden, crusty top.

I served this dish with rice and a side salad.  Easy, quick and so delicious.
