Drunken Salmon

One of the managers at a place I worked at long ago got this recipe as a fax. He tried it and loved it so much that he made copies for EVERYONE especially people that said they didn’t like fish. He insisted that even fish haters would like this one, and I agree completely. I like fish though I wasn’t much of a fan before this recipe. It was this recipe that made me realize that a lot of the fish I had in the past, the reason I didn’t like it was due to over cooking. Don’t over cook your fish it comes out a lot better.

1 lb. Salmon fillet (for 2)
¼ cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp. Bourbon whiskey (Early Times)
3 tbsp. Sweet onion (Vidallia) chopped
2 tbsp. Vegetable oil
3 tbsp soy sauce

Place salmon skin side down in baking dish and remove all small bones with tweezers. In a small bowl, combine all other ingredients and pour ¾ of it over the salmon to marinate in refrigerator for a few hours. Place salmon on grill or in broiler 5-7 minutes per side, brushing with remainder of marinade.

My notes:
I broiled each side 5 minutes (starting skin side down) then flipped it one last time (skin side down) and poured the rest of the marinade and cooked it another three to four minutes.

I used Evan Williams Whiskey
