Brown Sugar-Glazed Salmon

King Salmon

Brown Sugar-Glazed Salmon is one of my favorite ways to prepare salmon. It’s quick and easy! I like to serve it with rice and broccoli.


½ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (7-ounce) wild salmon fillets, skin and pin bones removed
½ cup chopped pecans, optional


Preheat the oven to 400˚F.

In a small saucepan; melt the butter and brown sugar. Whisk until combined. Set aside to cool.

Place the fillets skinned side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Brush the butter mixture over the fillets and pour remaining glaze over them. Top with pecans. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Transfer to warm dinner plates and serve right away.

Makes 4 servings

Freshness Criteria: A whole salmon should look bright, firm and glossy, as though it has just jumped from the water. It should be well cleaned and smell good. Gently press on it with your finger, it should feel firm and the flesh should spring back.

Remember to treat fish as any other meat, following food safety instructions. This means wash your hands, utensils and surfaces with warm soapy water after contact with raw fish.
