This is such a quick, easy, and delicious glaze. I combined together several of the ingredients found in many different recipes. Some of the recipes left out one or more of the ingredients. So flavorful is this glaze that I will be using this on other fish such as halibut and even on shrimp.
Glazy, crispy, umami goodness.
2 lbs. piece of salmon, center cut with skin on
¼ cup Hoisin sauce
2 Tbs. light brown sugar
2 Tbs. orange juice
1 Tbs. fresh lime juice
1 Tbs. soy sauce
2 tsp. grated ginger
1 medium garlic clove, grated
1 tsp. Coleman’s dry mustard
1 tsp. sesame oil
Whisk all of the ingredients together, with the exception of the salmon and set into the refridgerator to marry for about 1 hour. When ready to start your dinner, get your sides starting in advance. This is a really quick cooking recipe. Heat a grill pan or even better a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and start with skin side down. Baste salmon with half of the glaze and cook for approximately 5 minutes. Do not move salmon around or peek, let it sear to form a good crust. Flip and at this point the skin will be easy to remove from the flesh if you prefer. Baste again with remaining glaze, searing again for about 3-5 minutes.
In the past I have made hoisin glazed ribs or pork roasts like the ones served at Chinese restaurants but never knew what else to use it on. If you have other ideas for using hoisin sauce, please pass them on. I would love to hear your take on using this wonderful condiment.
I do want to apologize to all of you who frequent my blog for not being here again the last two weeks. I know you've heard it before; Life happens. First my brother came home from Dubai and we spent some time catching up, then helping him for several days, move some of his belongings from one home to his newly remodeled home. It was really great seeing him again. We can't wait for him to come home to stay! Then secondly I decided I was going to come down with a really nasty winter cold. So now I am back in the swing of LIFE. I can finally get out of the bed and move around without the ax I felt like I had sticking in the side of my temple. Carla
Thank you again for your dedication and kindness.
