This 5-ingredient broiled salmon recipe boasts rich flavor from a marinade of bourbon, spicy mustard, brown sugar, and ground chipotle pepper.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a shallow dish. Add salmon, gently turning to coat, and let stand 10 minutes. Place salmon on a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined broiler pan, reserving marinade. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Pour marinade over salmon.

Step 2

Broil 5 inches from heat 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.

Step 3

This recipe is so delicious & so easy. My entire family loves it (5 and 10 yr old sons and hubby!). I reduce the brown sugar amount some and keep the rest the same. Also use Jack Daniel's b/c that's what is in the house. I also get skinned salmon from Kroger butcher. You've got to try this recipe!

Too sweet, not enough flavor from the bourbon. Was hopeful but came away disappointed.

This is really an easy way to infuse some big wonderful flavors into salmon that is cooked in a healthy. I use skinned salmon because it is easier to work with and the exposed meat really pulls in the flavor. I also suggest that you don't skip on the bourbon. For the batch I made today, I used Four Roses Single Barrel. It does make a difference. Family and friends alike really enjoy this dish. Recipe says maranate for 10 minutes, which is fine, but I don't think you want to exceed 30 minutes. This is a winner.
