Bourbon-glazed Salmon

A quick shout out to my mom for suggesting this quick and tasty meal.  After she told me this was a staple recipe in her repertoire of meals, I knew it had to be great as she has a lot of critics to please (aka 4 brothers and my dad)!

Ready In: 20 minutes Servings: 2


-2 tbs butter

-1/4 cup dark brown sugar

-2 (6 ounce) salmon steaks/fillets

-3 tablespoons of bourbon whiskey ( I used Maker’s Mark because it was the smallest bottle they had of whiskey at Specs)


1) Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and the place salmon fillets on top of mixture.

2) Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, then turn salmon and pour bourbon around fillets and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes or until salmon flakes with fork

3) Serve salmon and place remaining glaze over each fillet

4) ENJOY =)

I served the salmon with french style green beans and salad.

The salad consisted of  romaine lettuce, mandarin orange wedges, strawberries, diced red onions and one of my favorite dressings, Briannaas’ Homestyle Rich Poppy Seed Dressing. This salad  is another one of my momma’s concoctions and is a delicious twist on getting a serving of fruit and veggies on your plate!


Let me know how you like it!

    Alas, no bourbon in our dry bush village… We’ll have to mark this one down to try next summer when we’re in Seward!

      I’m sorry to hear you don’t have access to any bourbon, but your adventures on a boat in Alaska I’m sure are worth it!
