Brown Sugar Salmon

posted by 1 year ago


1 lb. wild salmon

1/4 cup brown sugar

Coarse salt & fresh ground black pepper, to taste

1 1/2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil, divided

2 Tbs. Dijon mustard

1 Tbs. minced rosemary

Juice of 1/2 lemon


Combine brown sugar, salt & pepper in a shallow dish. Coat salmon filet (or filets if you've cut it into 2 pieces) on all sides with the sugar mixture. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with 1 Tbs. olive oil. Once hot, add the filets skin side down to the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until the skin is browned and crunchy, flip and cook on all 3 remaining sides for about 3 minutes per side, until each is golden brown. Transfer skillet to the oven and broil on high for another 3-5 minutes, until salmon is cooked through. While salmon is in the oven, whisk together the remaining olive oil, mustard, rosemary and lemon juice in a small bowl. Remove salmon from the oven, plate and drizzle the mustard sauce over top. (Yield: 2 servings)
