Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

Is there anything tastier than a nicely cooked piece of salmon? I think not. That is why I adore this recipe for brown sugar glazed salmon.

Typically I like to cook my salmon from fresh not frozen, but that cannot always be done. If you are going to be using a sauce go ahead and use a good frozen salmon filet. If you are going to grill and just serve with lemon still look for fresh. Do not forget, look for wild salmon not farmed. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a great resource guide for a guide to the best types of fish to purchase.
