Whiskey Glazed Salmon
Prep Time: 15 minutes
- 5 Ounces of Salmon Select Cuts, Wild Caught Each
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 Tbsp of Spicelopedia™ Italian Lemon Pepper Seasoning
- 1 Tbsp of Local Honey
- 1 Tbsp of Hot Honey
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- ¼ Cups of Whiskey
- 1 Tbsp of Whole Grain Mustard
- Garnish of Lemon Slices
- Garnish of Fresh Dill
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Rub each salmon filet on both sides with the olive oil and season evenly with the Spicelopedia Seasoning.
Bake salmon for 20 minutes.
While the salmon is baking, add the whiskey, both types of honey, the lemon juice and mustard to a saucepan. Reduce over medium heat to half.
Add 1/4 Cups of Whiskey.
Baste the salmon (top only) with the reduced (glaze) and continue to bake for five (5) minutes.
Garnish with dill and lemon slices.
For the biggest flavor pop, suggest using a flavored whiskey, like Maple Bacon, or Maple. If you want to create the maple-bacon flavor using regular Maple whiskey, you can add about an 1/8 tsp. bacon drippings to the reduction.
SUGGESTION: Serve over bacon mashed potatoes with steamed green beans.
