dark brown sugar
4 (6 ounce)
This is a recipe I also use and get rave reviews over. However....I adapted it 3 yrs ago from TX Land and Cattle restaurant's version, only they use brown sugar and Shiner Bock dark beer! With this bourbon version, I lay my fillets out and gently press the brown sugar into the fillets, then sprinkle them with the bourbon - I let them "rest" for about 30 minutes before quickly browning the sugar glazed filets over med-high heat in a non-stick saucepan, about 2 min each side. I wrap up the cooking process by popping them in the microwave for 1-1 1/2 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filets. These filets make a terrific presentation in a romaine-based salad with a topping of honey and brown sugar glazed coarsely chopped pecans (Johnny Carino's restaurants serve it like this) Enjoy! Impressive and will work well over the holidays.
This was ok but I won't make it again. Be careful with the temp.--the sugar burned.
Absolutely wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. I'm not sure why the previous reviewers experienced burned food, I had no problems. Just in case though, be sure not to use too much heat. Good luck!
The only change I made to the recipe was to soak my salmon in milk first to help counteract that fishy flavor. I was hoping that the bourbon would make "saucier" caramel but it all evaporated off & the caramel was indeed, caramel. I made extra to use as a topping & as soon as it hit the plate it solidified into a pretty tasty, chewy morsel of caramel. But who wants to peel caramel off their plate? LOL The flavor was great paired w/ the salmon though so next time, I'll add the bourbon later so that it doesn't all cook off. I paired this w/ brown rice cooked in wine & chicken broth & a salad w/ rice pudding for dessert. Thansk for a nice recipe Debbie F...we enjoyed it.
Great recipe! I experimented by substituting soy sauce for the bourbon and I loved it. A keeper!
Delicious! I took the advice of another user and added 1/4 cup soy sauce and a crushed garlic clove, added with the bourbon. I let the sauce simmer to a glaze after I removed the fish. The glaze is very flavorful/sweet, so if you are afraid of overpowering your salmon, I'd skip this recipe or leave the extra glaze off. I, however, enjoy the strong, sweet flavor and used a generous amount over my fish and brown rice :).
WOW!!!! Only the words of my fiance could do this recipe justice. "This is like gor-met or something!" Very simple to make. I served it with white rice, corn on the cob, and cherry tomatoes in dressing. It was a very appealing presentation. 5 STARS!!!!!
Absolutely delicious! My husband raved about it! Definitely fit for guests and it tastes like you spent hours on it, but it only takes minutes.
I will be making this on a regular basis. This is the best salmon recipe I've ever tried.
