I have a love/hate relationship with salmon. When it’s good, it’s mouthwatering. When it’s bad, the fishiness can linger in your mental scent-stream for days. Depending on the quality and the type of salmon you are able to buy, your recipe has an ‘opposite-ends-of-the-spectrum’ chance of being a success or fail. Which is why I am absolutely in love with this baked salmon recipe dish. It’s foolproof!
Foolproof Vodka And Clementine Glazed Baked Salmon Recipe
Salmon is notoriously fishy, so I only make baked salmon dishes with LOTS of citruses and glazes to overtake all traces of that nasty fishy taste. This recipe is among my go-to’s for holiday festivities.
There’s something magical about mixing clementines with rosemary that adds an extra dose of holiday flavor to an already delicious dish. Make this healthy and tasty vodka-based glaze smothered over freshly caught salmon, and give your palate a blast of fresh holiday cuisine.
- 1 lb. salmon fillet
- olive oil
- ground black pepper
- thinly sliced clementine, seeds removed
- sprigs of fresh rosemary or dill
For The Sauce
- 1/2 cup clementine juice
- 1/2 cup Tito’s vodka
- 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
How To Cook Tito’s Vodka And Clementine Glazed Salmon
Step 1: Prepare Oven
Set your oven to broil.
Step 2: Prepare Your Salmon
Lay the salmon in a roasting pan — big enough for it to lay flat. Brush both sides of the salmon with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and ground black pepper. Make sure the salmon is positioned skin side down. Then, arrange clementine slices on top of the salmon. Set aside.
Step 3: Prepare The Sauce
In a small pan, combine the juice, soy sauce, Tito’s vodka, and brown sugar and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and let the sauce thicken.
Step 4: Broil The Salmon
Pour the sauce over the clementines and salmon. Broil your fish for 15-minutes. Check your clementine, you may need to flip them over once to avoid burning.
Step 5: Transfer And Serve
Transfer your salmon to a serving dish, then garnish it with sprigs of fresh rosemary or dill. Don’t waste any sauce – drizzle it all over your fish before serving.
