Bourbon Salmon

6 Aug

One of the local restaurants used to have a bourbon salmon on the menu and I always loved it. Today I started craving for the flavor and came pretty close to it minus the butter they used for cooking. This marinate would probably work with chicken as well.


  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 3 tbs bourbon
  • 2 tbs low sodium soy sauce (gluten free)
  • 1 tbs fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

– salmon fillet
Mix the marinade ingredients together. Place the salmon in a large ziplock bag. Pour the marinade mix in the bag with the salmon. Marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hrs, turning the bag occasionally. Coat a heavy duty skillet with olive oil and heat it over medium high heat. Empty the marinade and fish to pan. Cook about 4-5 min each side or until fish becomes flakey.
