Molasses Glazed Salmon
This was a terrific salmon recipe that we all really enjoyed! It was a good mix of sweet and spicy and a good way to get some use out of the bottle of molasses I purchased awhile ago but haven't ever even opened! I can't even remember why I bought it - but whatever the recipe I bought it for and since forgot about, this is a wonderful way to use molasses and I will definitely pull this one out again in the future.
My husband was prepping this one and didn't put the foil underneath the salmon - I highly recommend making sure you have a protective layer between your baking dish and the salmon as the molasses mixture bakes on pretty hard and was lots of fun to clean up! :)
Molasses Glazed Salmon from Jessica Gavin
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 6-oz salmon fillets
2 teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/16 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
- Preheat oven to 525°F.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread the oil over the top to prevent sticking. Place the salmon fillets over the oil, skin side down.
- Combine the seasoning mix in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over the salmon fillets. Next, spread about a teaspoon of molasses over each salmon filet.
- Place the salmon on the lowest rack in the preheated oven (to prevent the sugars in the molasses and honey from burning too quickly).
- Broil the fillets for about 5 minutes then remove and drizzle honey evenly over the top and return to the oven for another 5 minutes, or until fish has cooked through and flakes easily.
- Allow the salmon to rest for 3-5 minutes on the sheet before serving.
