Bourbon Glazed Salmon Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 salmon fillet, cut into four pieces
  • 3 tbs. bourbon
  • 3 tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • Juice of ½ lime


1. Whisk bourbon, sugar, ginger and lime juice together in a small bowl. Place salmon in plastic, zip-top bag and pour glaze over the top. Seal bag and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.

2. Fold four squares of aluminum foil into four small trays. Give each a light coat of non-stick cooking spray. Remove salmon from glaze and place one piece in each tray.

3. Heat a grill to medium-high heat and place trays directly over hot part of the grill. Cover and cook 10 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
