Sweet Lemon and Soy Glazed Salmon

Dinner ready in less than 30 minutes is what I aim for on a weeknight.

And if most of my family likes what I have prepared, that is an extra bonus. 

On this night, dinner was on the table in 25 minutes and most of the family commented that they would like to have Sweet Lemon and Soy Glazed Salmon again.

At least once a week we have seafood of some sort.  Sweet Lemon and Soy Glazed Salmon are salmon fillets brushed with soy sauce and then glazed while roasting with a sweet lemon sauce.  Served with rice pilaf and roasted asparagus and dinner was ready in no time at all.

A stressfree and delicious dinner for you to prepare for your family.  Applause all around.

Sweet Lemon and Soy Salmon

adapted from a recipe in Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats: A Year of Deliciously Different Dinners

serves 5

olive oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
5 salmon fillets (6-ounces each)
lemon slices for serving

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a small saucepan over medium high heat, add the brown sugar and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 4 - 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce is slightly thickened.  Keep warm.

Heat a non stick saute pan to medium high heat and add 2 teaspoons of olive oil.  Meanwhile, brush both sides of the salmon with the soy sauce.  Add the fish to the pan and cook for 2 - 3 minutes.  Flip the fish over, bush with some of the brown sugar and lemon sauce and transfer to roast in oven for an additional 5 - 6 minutes or until the fish is just cooked through.

Remove from the oven and brush with any remaining sauce and serve with lemon slices.
