Recipe: Quickest–Ever Glazed Salmon

IMG_2439In light of my recent laziness (and brokeness, thanks new car), I have been really excited about making simple, quality meals. This is one of them, adapted from a Martha Stewart cookbook my mom gave me ages ago. Served with jasmine rice and broccoli sauteed in a little soy sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes, this salmon is a full meal in less than 30 that’s even kinda good for you (I don’t always aim for healthy, sometimes it just finds me).


Salmon filets [about $8 a pound for fresh Alaskan salmon]

Hoisin sauce [$3]

1 small OJ [$2]

honey [$3]

Jasmine white rice (or brown rice if you’re really trying to be healthy) and broccoli, for serving.


Preheat the broiler.

If making rice, start to cook to the package directions.

Mix Hoisin sauce, honey, and OJ in a bowl in a 3:2:1 ratio, or to taste. Brush on salmon filets and place in the broiler for about 15 minutes.  Re-Glaze salmon about halfway through to intensify flavor. While salmon is cooking, make broccoli, if desired.

Serve with side dishes and enjoy!
