Keys To Success Be careful not to overcook it under the broiler as the sugar will burn soon after carmelizing. If you prefer your fish cooked a little longer, turn off the broiler at 8 mins and let it sit a little longer in the hot oven.

This salmon dish is perfect for weekday dinners or for weekend entertaining. The sweet, zesty glaze covers up any fishy flavors making it perfect for even finicky eaters.  Combining brown sugar, lemon zest and fresh ground pepper are the key to making it flavorful yet IC Friendly.

Salmon is a fantastic fish that is easy to prepare, quick to cook and extremely nutritious. But when it comes to salmon, we recommend you buy quality Wild Caught Salmon.  What's the difference between farm raised and wild salmon?  Well, farm raised salmon are raised in bins where they are jam packed with hundreds if not thousands of other salmon.  They are fed fishmeal pellets which consist of ground up fish to fatten them up for market.  Studies have shown that this fishmeal pellets are often contaminated with Polychlorinated biphenyls or "PCBs" which are then absorbed by you when you eat the fish. Additionally, these Farm raised salmon do not even have the trademark pink colored flesh of wild salmon because they aren't eating their natural diet.  Consequently, the farm raised salmon are given artificial colorings to make them more palatable to the eye.

When it comes to salmon, we believe it's best to buy fresh, high quality wild caught fish. It's best if the salmon is cooked the same day as it is purchased.  However, it will keep in the fridge for a couple of days if stored properly.

  • Combine brown sugar, lemon zest, salt and pepper in the in food processer and pulse until the incredients are combined.  Using a mini work bowl attachment makes this job easier if you have one.Grab a baking sheet and cover it with tin foil (makes clean up easier as the sugar will meltand create a sticky mess).
  • Lay the salmon out on the baking sheet skin side down and pour the sugar mix on top spreading it out evenly over the salmon.  Lightly pat the sugar coating on the fish to make sure it is coated well.
  • Let the fish sit at room temperature for 45 minutes before broiling.
  • Position the broiler rack in your oven so that the top of the salmon sits about 3" below the heat.
  • Turn your oven on broil (highest setting) and let it preheat for 2 minutes.
  • Slide in your fish and cook for 6 - 8 mins (the outside should be golden brown). Be careful not to leave it under the broiler much past 8 mins or the sugar glaze will start to burn.  If you prefer your fish cooked a little longer, turn off the broiler and let the fish a few more minutes in the hot oven.
  • Take the fish out of the oven and let it rest uncovered for 5  - 10 minutes.

That's all there is to it.
