Brown Sugar-Glazed Salmon

We really love salmon.  It is good for you, the kids seem to like it and it goes on special often at the grocery store.  So, what isn't to like?  This is a pretty quick easy salmon recipe that tastes great and appears to take much more time than it actually does.  I like to serve this recipe with rice or couscous and a vegetable.  In this picture, I have it pared with Near East Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil Couscous and Roasted Asparagus

Brown Sugar-Glazed Salmon
Recipe adapted from Light and Tasty Feb/March 2006.

1 pound salmon filet
1 t cornstarch, divided
¼ t seasoned salt
¼ t freshly ground black pepper
3 T brown sugar
1 T reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 T Dijon mustard
1 t rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 425o.  Cut salmon widthwise into four pieces.  Place on a foil-lined 15”x10”x1” baking pan.  Rub each filet with ¼ t cornstarch*, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake, uncovered in preheated oven for about 10 minutes.  

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, mustard and vinegar.  Bring just to a boil.  Brush evenly over salmon.  Broil in oven for about 1-2 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Serves 4

*The cornstarch helps the glaze coat and stick to the salmon for better flavor.
