A Taste of Hawaii

I am not a fan of seafood, however my husband loves it. On our honeymoon trip to Hawaii, he had some delicious glazed salmon, and requested that I try to replicate it. I did not measure the ingredients exactly, and I only made it for one portion of salmon. I served it with brown rice and steamed vegetables, seasoned with some pineapple juice, minced garlic and soy sauce. Overall, a pretty healthy and fairly quick meal!

Aloha! Glazed Salmon

1 salmon fillet
2 tablespoons pineapple juice
3 tbsps soy sauce
1 tbsp honey

2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsps honey
2 tbsps pineapple juice
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp dried ginger
1 tbsp cornstarch plus 1 tsp water

Combine above ingredients with the exception of cornstarch and water. In another bowl, mix the remaining ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients in dish and place salmon fillet skin side up, cover and refrigerate for 25 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 and spray broiler pan with non-stick spray.

Mix glaze ingredients and heat in saucepan on low, stirring often till bubbly. Add cornstarch mixture and stir till thickened, keep on low, it will get really thick.

Remove salmon from fridge, and place on broiler pan skin side down. Bake for 10 minutes. Baste salmon with glaze halfway through baking. After 10 minutes, remove salmon, turn broiler on low, baste again and return to oven. Broil for 6-8 minutes or cook till salmon flakes easily with a fork. Remove and brush with glaze if desired. Serve with rice and vegetables.
