The salmon in this recipe is for those who usually don’t like fish—it’s that good.
Asian Glazed Salmon
- Cook & Prep: 1 h 20 m
- Serving: 4
In a small bowl, combine water, rice vinegar, brown sugar, hot pepper mix, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. Place a quarter cup of the mixture in a resealable plastic bag.
Add salmon and marinate for one hour. Reserve remaining marinade.
Heat a grill pan (or grill) to medium-high heat.
Season each salmon fillet with a pinch of salt. Place salmon in the grill pan and cook on high heat for six to eight minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
For the Sauce
In a small saucepan, bring reserved marinade to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about two minutes.
Sprinkle basil on top of salmon. Spoon hot glaze over basil.
