Mahogany Glazed Salmon
Monday, 27 July 2015

By: Charlotte Diamond


6 – 6 oz salmon fillets, skin on

1 can (10 fl oz/ 284 mL) chicken broth, undiluted

½ cup soy sauce

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 orange, juice and zest only


  1. In a saucepan whisk together chicken broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, cornstarch, orange juice and zest.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Pour glaze into a 9 x 13 inch (22 x 34 cm) pyrex pan and let cool 20 minutes.
  3. Place fillets skin side up in glaze, cover and refrigerate 1 – 8 hours.
  4. Preheat barbeque to medium-high and oil the grill. Remove fillets from glaze and place on grill skin side up. Sear salmon for 2 minutes, turn over, cover and cook another 7-10 min until salmon just flakes when pressed with a fork. Alternatively, place salmon on grill skin side down and cook, covered, for 10-12 minutes. Be careful as glaze burns easily.
  5. Pour remaining glaze into a small saucepan and boil 1 minute over medium-high heat. Serve salmon with the hot glaze.

Preparation time: 30 minutes (plus 1-8 hours refrigeration).

Cooking time: 15 minutes.

Serves 6.
