Mr. Food: Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

What You’ll Need

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 (12-ounce) package broccoli slaw
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine soy sauce, oil, vinegar, ginger, and garlic; stir in sugar. Heat 10 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. (Mixture will thicken.) Reserve 1/2 cup soy sauce mixture and set aside.
  2. Brush both sides of salmon evenly with remaining soy sauce mixture; cover and let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Place salmon on grill. Cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork, brushing occasionally with soy sauce mixture during cooking.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together broccoli slaw, scallions, sesame seeds, and 1/4 cup of the reserved soy sauce mixture; mix well. Serve salmon with broccoli slaw and drizzle with remaining 1/2 cup reserved soy sauce mixture.
