Bourbon Glazed Salmon

Ingredients
  1. 4 salmon fillets 6 oz. (170g) each, skin on
  2. 1/4 cup bourbon
  3. 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  4. 1/2 cup soy sauce (use reduced sodium for less salt)
  5. 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  6. 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  7. salt and pepper , to taste

Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • For the glaze: In a small saucepan, combine the bourbon, sugar, soy sauce, garlic and mustard. Bring to a boil and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, or until reduced by half. Remove from heat and let sit to thicken.
  • Pat salmon fillets dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Lay the salmon skin side down on a lightly oiled wire rack set over a baking sheet (to catch the drips). If you don't have a rack, a baking sheet will work just fine. Bake for about 15 minutes or so, depending on the size of your fish. When the salmon is nearly done, turn the broiler on in your oven. With a food brush, spread the glaze on top of the salmon. Be generous with your glaze!
