4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)

Fresh: Finish the fish under the broiler to caramelize the glaze into a tasty browned crust. Serve with roasted potato wedges and peas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag; seal. Refrigerate 10 minutes, turning bag once.

Step 3

Remove fish from bag, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute.

Step 4

Heat a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish to pan; cook 3 minutes. Turn fish over. Brush marinade evenly over fish. Broil 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Salmon perfection

November 07, 2015
I marinated for 30 minutes and grilled them on our Traeger on a grill pan for 15 minutes - basting after 10.  The salmon was perfectly cooked, tender, moist and very flavorful.  My teen had 2 servings and she's not a big fan of fish.  On our regular rotation now for sure.

This is one of our go-to salmon recipes. We make salmon about once a week and when i don't have time to go to the store or find a new recipe, this is our back up plan. It's light and a little sweet, usually serve with a side of green beans and wild rice.

I absolutely love this recipe. The glaze is heavenly. My daughter concocted a green salad with maple syrup and cider vinegar and peaches to accompany the salmon. Very good.

This was easy and excellent. I made this Norwegian salmon and it was great. Would recommend for a company dinner. Just enough flavor without overcoming the a great fresh, buttery salmon taste.

Good weeknight recipe. I didn't do the pan fry only the broiler and it was perfectly done. As others sugggested, I marinated the fish longer. About 30 minutes. This is not a strong tasting marinade but does add flavor.
