What's for dinner? Winter Spiced Glazed Salmon

Posted by Magic of Spice

Winter Spiced Glazed Salmon

This is another incredibly quick and simple dish to put together for the Holidays,
 or really any meal for that matter. The warming winter flavors work beautifully
 against this gorgeous troll-caught Alaskan Coho salmon.

Alaskan Coho salmon is a certified sustainable fish, and the troll-caught have
an even friendlier environmental touch. Troll-caught refers to the fishing method
used when catching wild fish. Trollers are small fishing boats where the fishermen
use the great old fashioned hook and line method. So this Eco-friendly
method insures very low bycatch rates along with the freshest
 individually handled fish available.

What you will need:
1 pound fresh Coho salmon
About 20 cloves, whole
Olive oil
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon garbanzo bean flour
1/8th teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/8th teaspoon allspice, ground
1 tablespoon dried cranberries, ground
1/2 teaspoon long pepper, ground
1 tablespoon pineapple juice
1 tablespoon brandy or spiced rum
Note: Glaze amount is based per pound
so adjust as needed

Let's get cooking:
Lay salmon skin side down on a well-oiled baking sheet or on a piece
of heavy duty foil, well-oiled if your baking sheet tends to stick. Pierce
the salmon flesh with the cloves as shown in photo above.

Place ingredients for glaze into a small bowl and mix until incorporated.
Cover salmon with glaze and place in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees (f).
Bake until internal temperature of the thickest piece reaches 140 degrees, or
about 15 minutes until fish flakes easily. Note: the temperature fish will
continue to cook when removed from the over and should reach 145
 degrees prior to serving.

You can leave the cloves in the salmon when serving being careful
to remove before eating, or remove prior to serving.
Serves 4-6
