I am not a seafood lover… or eater for that matter. I never liked seafood whatsoever until my husband and I moved to San Francisco. We were walking on the pier one day and decided to have dinner at Bubba Gump’s. I usually would have ran in the other direction of a seafood restaurant, but I was starving, so I gave in. With not a whole lot on the menu but fish, I decided to try a shrimp sampler. Oh. My. Goodness. It was amazing! Sure, half of the shrimp was covered in coconut and deep fried, but it was a start!
I have occasionally had shrimp here and there since we returned to Utah and finally decided to venture out in the world of seafood. I thought that I would be able to eat salmon if it were smothered in a delicious sauce, and this glazed salmon did the trick! Who knows? Maybe I am finally maturing! This salmon is definitely worth trying!
In a medium saucepan, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, red pepper flakes, garlic and lime juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat until sauce thickens (between 5-10 minutes). Set aside.
Preheat the broiler to high. Place salmon in a foil lined baking dish. Baste with glaze and broil for 4 minutes. Remove salmon from the oven, turn over, baste with glaze and return to the oven to broil for 4 more minutes. Remove the salmon from the oven and glaze one more time before serving.
