Sweet ‘n Spicy Glazed Salmon

My father-in-law had a friend who fished for salmon in Lake Michigan.  Every year, he gave my FIL 3 salmon; my FIL converted an old refrigerator into a smoker, smoked the salmon for his buddy, and kept one for himself.  Those were the “good old days” when we raved about his smoked salmon, and he shared with us! 

Sadly, those days are long gone, but salmon remains my favorite seafood…

This recipe for salmon, with it’s mouthwatering sauce, is adapted from Cooking Light, and has all the right flavors ~ sweet, salty, spicy and sour ~ all the right flavors that don’t outshine the salmon! 

It’s still on the cool side here so I turned the oven on again for dinner last night, but this is a great recipe for the grill also. 

The salmon is very tasty, really good ~ I didn’t have any leftovers and doubt if you will have either, when you make it.

Sweet ‘n Spicy Glazed Salmon


3 tablespoons Splenda brown sugar

½ teaspoon seasoned pepper

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil, remove from heat, set aside.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Preheat broiler.
Brush sugar mixture over salmon.
Place pan under broiler and broil for 3-4 minutes until fish flakes easily with a fork.



  1. We love salmon too Pam. I didn't realize Splenda had a brown sugar version. I know we wouldn't have any left-overs either.

  2. I love glazed salmon Pam! Look amazing!

  3. Salmon is so healthy! All those Omega-3 whatchamacallits.:)

  4. Pam, I like the glaze...sounds great! We need to start cooking fish at home instead of just eating them at restaurants. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  11. Hi Pam...I have never made salmon or eaten salmon...yes I know how is that possible...fish costs to much!! But my daughter visited recently and I bought salmon for her and she baked it....your recipe looks very good so I think it's time I try it!!

I am happy to hear what you have to say, and appreciate your taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
