Friday Food: Garlic Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

We are huge fans of salmon and there are so many health benefits from eating it.  It is high in protein content which is always a good thing but also the health fatty acids salmon can bring with it make it a favorite.  Combine that with some garlic and its own health boosting properties and you're all set to go.  Give this one a try with the added brown sugar to give a little sweetness.


  • 2 pounds salmon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • Garnish with sliced lemons and chopped parsley if desired.

The Game Plan: 

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Lay the salmon on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Fold up the sides of the aluminum foil around the salmon.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  pour the glaze over the salmon.  Top the salmon with aluminum foil and seal.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until salmon is cooked throughout.  Take the foil off of the top and baste the salmon with the sauce in the foil.  Broil for 3-5 minutes until brown and caramelized. Garnish with lemon slices and chopped parsley if desired.
