In this delicious glazed salmon recipe, the fillets are marinated in an unbelievably yummy combination of brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, soy, ginger, lemon, onions, and garlic. It’s easy to make and you’ll become a fish lover for sure if you aren’t already. You don’t have to use expensive bourbon either unless you want to drink some with it. LOL
The benefits of eating salmon
This will sound very scientific but salmon contains small bioactive protein molecules that provide support for joint cartilage, insulin balance, and control of digestive tract inflammation.
The best wild salmon, with the least amount of contamination from pollutants, comes from Alaska because the waters there are pristine. Try sockeye (red), coho (silver), pink (humpback), chum (Keta), and Chinook (King). Each variety has a different taste and texture. The best salmon I ever had was when I went on an Alaskan cruise. On one excursion, we flew over glaciers on a floatplane to Taku Lodge in Juneau, where they hosted a salmon bake. It doesn’t get better than that.
