Brown Sugar and Bourbon Salmon


  • 1 skinless wild salmon fillet ( 2-3 lbs)
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 cup scallions, white and green parts, sliced on a bias
  • 2 tsp sesame oil rice for serving
This recipe may be prepared in the oven but we think it is much better prepared over hot charcoal.
  • Preheat and oven to 425 degrees or alternatively create a hot charcoal fire.
  • To prepare marinade in a glass baking dish, add the bourbon, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil and scallions. Mix well.
  • Add the salmon and turn to coat. Cover and let marinate for 30-45 minutes
  • If baking, remove salmon from marinade and bake for about 15-20 ┬áminutes.
  • If cooking over coals, cook over a hot fire for about 8 minutes per side ( for salmon that is 1 inch thick).
  • Serve with rice and vegetables.
