Maple & Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

maple brown sugar salmon

I had memories growing up of when my Mom would make salmon and all I could smell was this stinky fish permeating throughout the house.  I wouldn’t go near it.  If it tasted anything like it smelled I was running in the other direction.

All this changed one day last summer when my friend Nancy convinced me I would like it.

Man was she ever right!

All she did was wrap the salmon in foil, added a little butter, honey and brown sugar and it was beyond delicious.  The salmon wasn’t drenched in anything, it wasn’t fishy like I thought it would be.  It was so tender and mild it had become my new favorite food.  I would eat it daily if I could afford it.

I came up with my own version that I thought I would like.  It has melted butter, a little brown sugar, maple syrup and a dash of Tamari (soy sauce).  It was the BOMB!   Just look at all that yumminess under the salmon.

This recipe makes enough sauce for 4 salmon fillets.   Try it, I really think you’ll like it!

Understanding why farm raised salmon is so bad for you is very important.   It Pays to Live Green has a nice article explaining why wild caught salmon is hands down the better choice.  Please take a moment to read this.  It’s imperative we are educated in what farm raised fish is doing to our health.  Yes it is cheaper, but far more toxic!
