Brown Sugar Salmon

There are a lot of things to love about this simple recipe. First of all, you probably already have everything you need to make it at home except the salmon so it only requires picking one thing up for dinner. Secondly, it takes under 10 minutes to prepare. Paired with a simple salad or some quick cooked veggies, it is a meal you really can prepare in under fifteen minutes. And last but not least, the brown sugar in the recipe creates that great, restaurant style, caramelized crunch on the outside of the fish. It also makes for great leftovers so plan on cooking some extra pieces for lunches and salads later in the week.

    We made this last night. My family loved it and requested it for dinner again tonight. I also made stemmed broccoli and quinoa as sides.
