Glazed Salmon Recipe

Use Deep Water Wild Salmon

Real Restaurant Salmon Recipe

This Glazed Salmon Recipe is dedicated to my nephew who is a fisherman in the deep, cold waters off Alaska. To him and all those brave souls who harvest wild seafood, including wild salmon, for our dining pleasure and our nutrition.

Thanks nephew.

Salmon Buying Tips

  • Fresh salmon steaks and fillets should be firm and deep, "salmon pink" in color. The meat should have a slight sheen and appear somewhat translucent.
  • Choose steaks and fillets with smooth cuts. Cuts of salmon that have gaps or separation of muscle fibers are indicative of old fish.
  • Packaged salmon should be stored in an airtight container with no visible liquid.
  • Frozen salmon should be in an air tight package with no visible frost.
  • Refrain from salmon that has a strong "fishy" smell, the fish odor should be mild.

Glazed Salmon Recipe

Seafood Recipe from Restaurant

Preparation time: 5 minutes. Serves 4.


  • 1 1/2 pounds skin-on deep water wild salmon fillet or use four fillets, 6-7 ounces each (Thicker cut fish will stay moist longer)
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tablespoons Low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil

Handling Tips:

  • Keep salmon refrigerated until ready to grill.
  • Keep salmon skin intact while grilling. The skin will prevent the salmon from curling up and flaking apart. The skin is easily removed after grilling.
  • Brush salmon and grill grate with a thin coat of cooking oil to prevent sticking on the grill. Oil the grill grate before starting the grill.


Grilling Method: (medium hot grill)

  • Grill fish 3-4-inches from heat.
  • Place salmon steak/fillet skin side up directly on grill grate. Cover.
  • Grill steaks/fillets for a total of 4-6 minutes (2-3 minutes per side) per 1/2 inch thickness, turning only once.

Check for Doneness:

  • Salmon continues to cook after being removed from the grill. Cook salmon just until meat begins to change color and becomes flaky.
  • To check the flakiness, insert the tip of a sharp knife near the bone or at the thickest part of the salmon and pull slightly.
  • Grill whole fillets 6-8 minutes per side or until it just starts to flake when tested
  • Turn fish and brush with sauce two or three times while it finishes cooking


The Broiling Method:

  • Preheat broiler.
  • Place foil on sheet pan and oil lightly.
  • Place salmon on foil, brush with marinade, and place 3-4 inches under broiler.
  • Brush with marinade at least 2 more times or until fish just begins to flake.

Did you know? Wild salmon are “anadromous,” meaning most salmon are born in fresh water, migrate to the sea, and return to freshwater to reproduce, or "spawn." Read about the salmon of  the Pacific Northwest.
