Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon with Spicy Broccoli


Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon with Spicy Broccoli recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen


Salmon topped with a spicy, sweet, and slightly tangy glaze was a great match for the spicy broccoli. The adults who tried the broccoli all thought that it was every bit as delicious as the salmon. (We will be ignoring my boy's reactions to broccoli - they just don't understand what they are missing!)

I loved all of these flavors together.  This is one of the best salmon recipes I have ever made. Definitely a keeper!

Glazed Salmon with Spicy Broccoli
recipe adapted from Everyday Food
(printable recipe)

3 6-ounce salmon fillets
2 small bunches broccoli - or about 4 cups florets with stem
6 tablespoons light flavored olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 scant teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons peach jam

Heat the broiler with rack in middle position. In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, combine the oil, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, pepper and jam. Set aside.

Line a baking sheet with foil and grease lightly with oil. Place the salmon on the baking sheet and then spoon about half of the sauce mixture on top of the fish. Broil just until the fish barely flakes apart with a fork, about 10 minutes.

While the fish is cooking, steam the broccoli, in the microwave or on the stove-top. Remove when still crisp tender, after about 4 minutes. Drizzle the remaining sauce over the broccoli, tossing gently to coat well. Enjoy!

    1. You are way too sweet, Geni! I have exactly zero tips to share. Sometimes, there is just a lucky shot. I usually feel like I'm about as amateur as it gets with most of my photos. I simply use natural light whenever possible. I think I might have 3 pictures on the entire site that I took using indoor lighting and you can really tell the difference. I've also learned how to seriously open up the light setting on my camera. Of course, it always helps if I can actually hold the camera still enough to keep the food in focus! It's a fun learning game though.

  13. I just made a side of salmon for the family for lunch yesterday. This glaze would have been nice with it. I didn't eat any, since I hate fish, but they all loved it. Served it with the ranch dip, which may seem odd, but salmon and dill go great together so it made sense to me.

  15. Hi, do you think this would work with other jams or does it have to be peach jam? I only have strawberry jam. Thanks!
