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

Seasoning Mix
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

  1. Preheat oven to 525°F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Place the salmon on the lowest rack in the preheated oven (to prevent the sugars in the molasses and honey from burning too quickly).
  5. 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.
  6. Allow the salmon to rest for 3-5 minutes on the sheet before serving.

  1. This sounds wonderful- I love molasses, though I rarely find a use for it other than Christmas cookies!

  2. Thank you Nora! I always enjoy finding new ways to use ingredients like that, where you buy it for one key recipe and then it sits half used for awhile!! This was a terrific use for the molasses.
