The combo of sweet and savory in this glaze will keep you coming back for more!
Any extra glaze will keep for weeks if refrigerated in a covered container. Suggested side dishes would be jasmine rice and seasonal vegetables like sugar snap peas.
½ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons peeled and sliced ginger
Dried red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1½ to 2 pounds salmon fillets
Place the sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, a dash of red pepper flakes, garlic, and lime juice in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the sauce forms a glaze. Set aside.
Preheat the broiler.
Place the salmon fillets on a broiler pan and baste with the sauce. Let sit for 15 minutes. Broil them until cooked through, about 8 minutes, basting again with the glaze. Remove the salmon from the heat and baste once more with the glaze before serving.
