Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon (and a Giveaway!)

Summer grilling season is almost here and I can’t wait! Today, I’m sharing with you an easy, stress-free meal that you can make on the grill (or in the oven). A main entree and two sides are cooked and ready to eat in under 30 minutes. It’s great for a summer night meal with family or friends.

This Asian-style brown sugar glazed salmon is one of my go-to summer dishes. The marinade is just three ingredients: brown sugar, soy sauce and mustard. If you prefer something a little spicier, you can also add in some hot sauce or sriracha sauce. The fish is brushed with marinade and then put on the grill to cook.

To balance out the meal, I also like to have at least two sides. Grilled asparagus is very simple. I usually brush mine with a little olive oil, sprinkle some salt and pepper and then squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on top. For my other side, I heated up Bush’s® Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans to match with the brown sugar glazed salmon.

My family often had baked beans as part of our dinner when I was growing up, especially in the summer. Now, that I’m an adult, I understand why. Cooking for a family of six couldn’t have been easy so I can see why my mom would choose baked beans to help her with the side dishes for our meals. As a child, my favorite was always the ones stewed in a sweet sauce, so I definitely have a fondness for these brown sugar baked beans. The brown sugar in the beans really helps to enhance the brown sugar glaze on the salmon. The beans can be heated on a cast iron skillet directly on the grill along with the asparagus and salmon. Everything cooked in about ten minutes!

When summer is here, I don’t like to spend long hours in the kitchen cooking, so these easy meals are my favorite to make. I hope you enjoy this one too!

Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. mustard
  • 1 tsp. sriracha or other hot sauce (optional, if you want to make it more spicy)

Directions:

1. Add sugar, soy sauce, mustard and sriracha (if using) to a medium sized bowl. Whisk all ingredients until a smooth sauce forms.

2. Brush salmon generously on all sides with marinade.

3. To make the asparagus, brush about 1 lb. of washed and trimmed asparagus with 1-2 tbsp. olive oil. Then sprinkle with salt, pepper and lemon juice. 

4. To make the beans, pour one can of Bush’s brown sugar hickory baked beans into a large cast iron skillet.

5. Preheat your grill before adding your ingredients. I preheated my gas grill to 400°F. Place prepared fish and asparagus directly on grill. Place cast iron skillet with beans onto the grill. Close lid over grill and cook for five minutes. Open lid, and brush another layer of marinade on the fish. Continue to cook everything, with lid of the grill off. Fish should take about 10 minutes total to cook. Asparagus should be cooked until tender, which will take 8-10 minutes. Beans will begin to simmer after about 5 minutes and should be stirred a few times so that the are evenly heated. It should take about 10 minutes to heat.
