Gluten Free Glazed Salmon Recipe

A superfood is defined as “a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial to health and well-being.” With that definition in mind, doesn’t it make sense to incorporate as many superfoods into your diet as possible?

I believe that preparing healthy and delicious food need not be complicated and, to prove that point, I have created this 5 Ingredient (not including water, oil, salt, and pepper) superfood recipe to help get you on the super highway to better health. It will help boost your immune system, fight disease, feel more energetic, and maybe even lose a few pounds.

Salmon contains a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which research suggests can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and offer a host of other benefits, such as aiding in sun protection and improving cognitive brain function, specifically in middle-aged adults.

Ingredients
  • cup brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha or hot sauce
  • 4 6-ounce skin-on salmon fillets
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, water, tamari, and sriracha, and stir to dissolve the sugar. Reserve ⅓ of the mixture. Pour the rest into a pie plate or similar dish, add the salmon fillets, and turn to coat. Let sit at room temperature while the oven preheats, about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  3. Turn the salmon again in the marinade, then place on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down. Discard the marinade. Bake for 4-6 minutes per ½ inch of thickness of the salmon fillets; 4 minutes per ½ inch will give you a moister center, while 6 minutes per ½ inch will give a flakier consistency.
  4. While the salmon is baking, place the reserved marinade in a small skillet or saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced in volume by half and has become syrupy.
  5. Place the cooked salmon fillets on a serving dish and spoon the reduced sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
