Quick and Easy Preparation

Prepping this salmon dish is a breeze. Half an hour before your meal, cook some rice (quinoa also works wonders) and prepare the asparagus. Haricots verts, the long and skinny French green beans, would be another excellent choice to accompany this entrée. Just 10 minutes before serving, preheat the oven, brush the salmon with half of the glaze, and broil until beautifully caramelized on both sides. Remember to drizzle the remaining sauce over the salmon when serving.

Either way, your guests will be delighted.

Café Tips for the Perfect Honey Bourbon Glazed Salmon

  • The glaze can be prepared ahead of time and stored at room temperature until needed. Divide it into two portions: one for glazing and the other for drizzling.
  • If the glaze becomes too thick, simply add a teaspoon or two of water and gently reheat until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Adjust the spiciness according to your preference by starting with ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes and adding more if desired.
  • When broiling, use two pans to prevent excess sauce from burning and creating unwanted smoke. Trust us, nobody wants a smoke detector blaring during their meal!
  • For a complete meal, serve the salmon with rice and a green vegetable like asparagus or Haricot verts. Garnish with white and black sesame seeds, finely sliced chives, or even cilantro.
