Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze
This is my favorite recipe! I make this way too often. It's quick and easy! I serve this with rice and broccoli.

Use honey instead of brown sugar, add some soy sauce, use dry prepared mustard and you have the exact recipe that Windsor Court Grill Room uses for their Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon
If you add about 1/2 cup of Jack Daniels whiskey, a little minced garlic, and a tsp of lemon juice to the base recipe marinade, it takes an already great recipe and makes it outstanding!!
Excellent! My husband and I loved this recipe. Very easy to make. Don't forget to foil your pan since the brown sugar burns on the pan and some of it does run off as cooking.
This is a recipe I'll make again for sure! Not only is it quick and easy, but the flavors are perfect together. I didn't pay this recipe very much attention until I saw it printed on a card on the counter where I buy my fish--which also happens to be a very popular fish restaurant in my area. If I change anything, it may be just to bake it at 425 rather than broil it. Thanks! UPDATE: I baked it at 400 for about 15-18 minutes, and we liked it best that way. Very good!
I have to confess that I was a little skeptical about this recipe at first because the basic ingredients are only dijon mustard and brown sugar, but it was very taste. I marinated for 1 hour and we grilled instead of broiling because we prefer this way.
This was VERY good but I added extra dijon mustard--big mistake! I thought it would run off and make a sauce but it didn't. Live and learn I guess. Definately try this recipe!
great recipe! perfect for the working mom. I made it just as the recipe reads took about 15 min in total and the whole family loved it. thanks
This recipe is great. It's so fast becuase there's no marinating yet it's packed full of flavour. I love it! My 2 yr old son will even eat it. I serve it with rice and asparagus.
We have to cook low sodium for our son, so we cooked this without salt, and it was still delicious!!! We absolutely loved it.
Very good but never cook fish until it "flakes easily". It flakes easily when it's DRY. It should gently pull apart when pulled with a fork and still look moist without looking wet. With experience you'll know.
cooked it for my mom who has never had salmon before and now she eats it all the time
Have done this recipe before but added choped pecans to the glaze......talk about good!!!
quick....and no need to go rummaging for ingredients.
This is a must try! I use to hate salmon and Dijon mustard but this has become a weekly dinner in my house. Is even great left over the next day. I do not broil mine though. I cook it for about 30 min in a 350 degree oven! Love love love!!!
It was a lazy Snday afternoon when dinner was upon me.I had taken out the salmon and saw this recipe for it last night. I put the sauce together and forgot to add the S & P. I poured the sauce on and nuked it for 10 mins. The family ate the whole thing! The sauce was Delish! Quick, easy peasy and Yummy! THANK YOU Tamara!! I will keep this in rotation.
SO DELICIOUS. I did add a dash of soy to cut the sweet, but overall very yummy. Will becme a regular dish.
Best Salmon i've ever had. (I don't eat Salmon much but when i do it seems bland) the GLAZE gave tons of flavor and I cannot wait to make it again!
I made this last night, and it was delicious! Next time I will make a double batch to coat the salmon even more. It made a nice thin crunchy little "crust" on top, but my salmon was so thick that I wished I had used more. Will definitely make this again, it was too easy!
The recipe is very good! Thanks for that. The picture, on the other hand, looks like open heart surgery, or maybe a liver transplant. Honestly, who in their right mind would put that picture on here. Edit to say ... thank goodness they changed the picture! Now it looks as good as it tastes. :-)
Delicious! I baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
This is a surprisingly tasty recipe, given how few ingredients there are in it. We had it for dinner tonight and it is quick to make, and delicious. Next time, I am going to add some garlic, just for an extra zing. Thanks for sharing Tamara. P.S. I made this recipe again and this time used honey for the brown sugar as other reviewers have suggested, added 1 clove of minced garlic and 1 tbsp of soya sauce, marinated the salmon in the mixture for 2 hours and baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. A very good variation.
tried this tonight & didnt care much for it. maybe too sweet for my taste. Prefer more of a soy sauce type flavor.
great, best salmon i have ever had, crispy coating from the grill.
Loved this recipe. Used brown sugar with splenda to cut the calories. Baked it instead of broiling for 25 minutes covered with foil and then broiled for 4 minutes. Delish.
Amazingly easy and seriously delicious! The only change I made was using spicy brown mustard instead of dijon cause that's what I had on hand. This is my new favorite salmon recipe!!
Winner, winner salmon dinner. This was delicious and my 4.5 year old son loved it! I followed the ingredients for the recipe exactly, and used two salmon fillets, just shy of a pound. I had to adjust the cooking method, because I tend to overcook things when I broil them. I wrapped the fillets in silver foil, placed them in a pan, and cooked for about 23 minutes at 400. Superb. Thanks Tamara for a great recipe!
My whole family loved this! Simple and delicious! We grilled the salmon on a cast iron griddle and served it with green beans with satueed garlic mushrooms and bread.
Followed recipe exactly... but it doesn't specify what temp for the broiler. I put it on medium and after 4 minutes there was a horrible burned smell. All the glaze was burning! After 10 min everything touching the sugar was charred and the salmon was a little dry. Not a bad idea but I think it would be better to have baked it first, then broilit a minute or two.
This is my husband's rating. He really liked the glaze and wished it could have been applied thicker without falling off. I, however, wouldn't rate it a 4 because I simply don't like salmon, and the smell about killed me as I was cooking it. ALSO, use foil! I didn't, and my pan will never be the same. I will admit though, the glaze was quite tasty to get me through it. (I can't wait until people quit giving us free salmon! Can't they give us tilapia or something?)
Awsome recipe !
This is my new favorite way to eat salmon! The easiest recipe EVER, and the flavor is so multi-dimensional! I doubled the sauce and that was probably too much, but better that way than too little. Also I'm intimidated by the broiler so I wrapped the fillets in foil packets and stuck them in the oven at 400 for about 40 minutes (they were thick). Amazingly moist, tangy, sweet fish that I will dream about tonight!
The broiling didn't work for me, after a few minutes the sugar started burning and it was not cooked all the way through. BUT, I reduced the heat to 320, covered it on foil and stick it back to the oven .... it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!! thanks for the recipe...will do again baked not broiled. :)
Very tasty and very easy. My 13 yr old inhaled it!! Thanks for posting.
This is deicious! I"ve used this for salmon, chicken, and steak and it's delicious with all! No changes. Perfect as is!
Yum yum yum!!! The only thing that I did different was adding a dash of soy sauce! This is in our rotation now for dinner :)
Delicioso! My way: bae for 20 min @ 375 F and double the ingredients in the glaze.
Simply lovely! Wouldn't change a thing!
This was a fantastic recipe! My girlfriend and I were looking for a simple way to make some tasty salmon, and I don't think we could have chosen a better recipe. An exceptional dijon mustard is highly recomended.
Can I give this recipe 6 stars? The reason for that is because it's easy and tasty!
I have a little foodie in my house and he doesn't like traditional kid fare and is a very slow eater. I don't think I've ever seen him eat something fast, but I think I blinked and his plate was clean! I will do this for him again and again and again...
Good and easy! Next time try using the foil trick (seal it up in foil and bake it).
Loved loved loved this recipe. Just fixed it tonight for a small dinner party and everyone really enjoyed it. Served it on a bed of rice with homemade creamed peas. Delicious! I made no modifications. Will absolutely be making this one again and again. Thanks so much!
I typically make the recipe for balsamic glaze salmon found on this website (also outstanding) but decided to give this a try after receiving it in an email today. It was a great alternative to one of our favorite dishes and definitely a keeper. Highly recommended.
This is fabulous, I added 1 tble. of ginger powder, adds a real punch.
Delicious! I loved the flavor this had. I did 3 salmon filets but kept the same amount of sauce. I only had honey mustard though instead of dijon but it was still very delicious. Will do again!
for some reason the glaze kind of dried up and got sticky in the over...I was expecting more of a barbecue glaze kind of texture but it got so viscous that i didnt enjoy it. My boyfriend loved it. I will try baking it a at a lower temperature.
I didn't really care for it and neither did my family.
I can't make enough of this at one sitting! I even tried it on Tilapia. My whole family thinks the glaze is the cat's meow!
I dislike salmon...easily my least favorite fish! YET I tried this and my family LOVED it! I baked it in the oven at 375 for about 25 minutes. Sadly I forgot to spray my foil lined pan so dealt with some sticking (totally my fault!) yet the end results were flavorful, a little sweet, and my 7 and 4 year old cleaned their plate! This one is certainly a keeper!
Very easy to prepare! Delicious! Homerun!!
I was unsure about the dijon and brown sugar together - interesting mix of ingredients! Tried this and we enjoyed it. I did bake my salmon at 400 instead of broiling it. Served with Lemon Basmati Rice from AR and some steamed carrots/broccoli. Great meal!
Honestly, this could not have been any easier and it tasted so good! I broiled it on top of tin foil, so clean up was a cinch!
Holy moly. The ingredients made me wonder how in the world this could be so amazing... but I promise you. This is the easiest and most delicious recipe in my repertoire!! Follow the instructions exactly, do not deviate and you will have the most tender and flavorful salmon!! Just the right amount of sweet, and I love that the broiler crisps the edges just perfectly. Warning: it stinks like you would not believe while preparing and cooking, but do not be fooled by the stench! My entire family gobbles it up and my husband gives me that look of adoration that he only gets when eating for some reason (lol). Thank you SO much for this outstanding and easy recipe!!
Very easy and tastes great! I use A1 with for my steak sauce. Would highly recommend!
This recipe was good.
very easy and great tasting. however do not cook using the BROIL setting. it burned my Dijon mustard. I was able to save the fish and make more mustard. I would bake next time.
Made as directed. Came out excellent! Simple, but very tasty. The brown sugar and Dijon mustard are the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. The sauce would also top any variety of meat; be it chicken, steak or pork; very well! I loved this and will be making it again.
I do the same recipe but omit mustard (don't like) and use teriyaki sauce instead. I also cut into the salmon and rub the sugar-sauce in and broil exactly 12 min. I serve with rice on the side...so delish :)
Excellent sauce but needs to be doubled. I'll remove skin next time and coat both sides. Broiling also left very little sauce, so I'll bake at 350 and seal in foil for a moister salmon. Everyone loved the sauce.
Perfect as it! Mouthwatering...thanks for sharing!
Best I have had in awhile. I eat salmon a lot, so I like different tastes to mix it up.
Really tasty flavor combination. I liked the fact I didn't need to wait and marinade Threw this together and ready to eat in 15 minutes!
So yummy! Even my two-year old will eat fish when done this way;) The whole family loves it and I love it because it is SO easy.
This is really really yummy! I used Grey poupon country Dijon mustard and it was amazing. I have saved this and will use again without a doubt. Thank you for sharing the recipe. :)
Everyone loved this, and it it so simple. I used Splenda brown sugar blend, so used only about an 1/8 cup.
So easy and so delicious!! I served it over brown rice and asparagus.
This was easy but was a little sweet for us. Follow the instructions - we bought wild caught sockeye salmon which was really red, and I kept thinking it was underdone and kept cooking it until we killed it.
this was great! the best! and super easy....
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best! You really can't beat this for a quick and delicious topping for salmon. The sweetness and little bit of spice from the mustard go great with the strong flavor of salmon.
This was so yummmmmmmm! after reading a few reviews i decided to also add a little dried mustard and a little soy sauce...a little goes a long way to alter the flavor from the original recipe. It was a crowd pleaser and can't wait to cook it again!
Delicious just as written. Would make again.
So simple and tasted really good! A hit with my whole family--even my picky 3 yr. old! Made exactly as the recipe says, and served with rice and broccoli as suggested. A FAST dinner that seems like you fussed even though you didn't.
I fixed it just like it said and was really great. I served it with a side salad of fresh greens of choice, sliced beets on top and French dressing. So easy and so great.
Glaze was perfect....it is not a sauce but a glaze. Excellent and easy way to make salmon!
This was very tasty and VERY easy. I used the recipe calculator to reduce the servings to two. I rubbed the fillets with a slice of lemon, sprinkled on some dry dill weed along with the salt & pepper, covered them with the sauce and baked them for the full 40 minutes. Served with buttered noodles, steamed snow peas and decorated the plates with lemon twists. Pineapple wedges & red seedless grapes were dessert.
I used dark brown sugar, but the result was still great! Love that it's quick and simple and tasty!
A little less cooking time...got really done in only 15 minutes in the lower oven...Broiled for 5 minutes and then baked at 350 for 10 mins and it was much better this time
Really good flavor and super easy! The only thing is it was not enough sauce. Next time I will double the sauce and marinade!
My husband requested I make my salmon this way EVERY time!
A little too sweet for me and I think the sugar kind of burned slightly on the fish...however...the texture and taste of the salmon was excellent once I scraped off the parts that burned a bit.
AWESOME!!!!! The whole family loved it.
I make this recipe often. My 8 year old son always asks for it. It is such an easy recipe. I make mine a little different. I coat the salmon with a thin layer of dijon mustard and then I pack brown sugar on each fillet. Putting a little water in the pan also makes for extra glaze. Delicious!
outstanding. I bought a very tasty salmon and that is half of the issue, but the recipe is simple and delicious. new favorite
This is my new favorite salmon recipe! Sooo good! I used honey dijon because that is what I had in the fridge. I probably will make more glaze when I make this for my husband as I used 3/4 of the glaze on one fillet (just for me!)-- the extra sauce is so good! I served it on top of jasmine rice.
Mmmmm.....so incredibly good! I too wondered how this simple recipe would work out, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it really was.
We love this recipe! I used the listed amount of sauce on 1 pound odf salmon. The only change I made was to bake at 400 for 25 minutes, instead of broiling. It turned out perfectly!
good for salmon
I just got my base idea from this recipe. I uses 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 tablespoon soy sauce and baked it for half a hour. It turned out great!
Awesome recipe - I did add a little honey and mirin to the glaze
Added ½ tbsp of olive oil to the glaze to make it easier to spread... this was delicious and oh so easy!
So simple - my absolute favorite recipe! I could not believe that such an easy recipe could be so, so good. Even better it was a hit with my young four children.
Fantastic, only tales a few mins to prepare What a difference it makes. Lovely flavor, will be using this more often.
Excellant as is, but I will try some of the variations listed in other reviews.
Amazing! So very easy!
The mustard and sugar caramelize in the broiler, with delicious results!
Very easy and very delicious. The sweetness in the brown sugar counters the spicy Dijon mustard nicely, leaving a sweet, flavorful glaze that was so good. Definitely put foil on your pan - cooking spray is no match for the sticky sugar. Next time I think I'll let this marinate for a few hours to let the flavors really permeate the fish.
Absolutley delicious! Picture doesn't do it justice. If you love salmon, this is an easy and wonderful recipe to use.
Hubby supposed to be eating more fish, but he doesn't like it, so I decided to try this and he LOVED it. That's a huge statement for him. Definitely a keeper.
Simply delicious! Extremely easy. 1 1/2 times the topping to coat an entire fillet. The most moist salmon I have ever had and my mustard-hating, fish-denigrating son really likes it! Ha!
