I think i have mentioned before that i am not so fond of cooking fish . My husband does the fish and they ALWAYS turn out delicious . Lately though , since we’ve moved down south , the temporary place we’re living , don’t have that much kitchen space . I think that’s why i cook most of the time , we usually enjoy cooking together , but due to the small space of the kitchen , i will have to handle 99% of the cooking .
This time , i ended up choosing fish . The past several times i’ve been cooking fish , my family loves it . So i thought why not throwing in seafood , fish in particular in the menu , twice a week . Beside it’s healthy ! So now , let’s talk about salmon . This maple dijon glazed salmon is to die for !! If you are not fond of salmon , you will change your mind . I found the recipe online , but i altered it here and there , and i thought the glazed was delicious .You can always broil the salmon in the oven , but this is kinda risky , because it gets really hot , if the fillet is thick on one side and thin on the other side , you’ll risk to burn the salmon . Or under cook it .. yuck . Or you can always grill it , which is a great choice in my opinion . If i had my grill i would have chosen that , but my grill is in the storage still . Now , i ended up with 1 choice only , i used skillet , non stick skillet to cook this salmon fillet . You have to becareful not to cook it with too high heat , slow cooking is the perfect way to cook this salmon , and they turn out flaky and moist . Who wants dry flaky salmon ? LOL ..
About 2 lbs of salmon fillet , cut into 4 pieces .
Salt and pepper the fillet generously . Set aside , Now let’s make the glaze :
2 tbsp. of butter
3 tbsp. of brown sugar
1 tbsp. of maple syrup
Bring these ingredients in the small pot , medium heat to melt it , boil for 1 minute . Remove and add :
1 tbsp. of minced ginger
2 tbsp. of soy sauce
2 tbsp. of olive oil
1/4 cup of good dijon mustard ( i used grey poupon )
Mix together , and brush it on the salmon while you’re cooking it
