This is a favorite recipe of our serious quiet heroine in The Witching Hour, Rachel who returns to her childhood home in search of her lost locket. She must find it before midnight when the house will become the property of the Havenport Historical Society.
This recipe was her favorite mostly because of her Steffen. Imagine her surprise when Steffen brought a fine salmon along with a strong appetite back to their campsite. She couldn’t wait to tempt him with her offering(s). Luckily for both of them, this recipe takes less than ten minutes.
PS…Rachel served the salmon to Steffen in the flickering camp light. Tantalized, he licked the sticky glaze from his fingers never taking his eyes off her. But that’s a totally different story.
PPS…My son, Ari, made this recipe whenever he wants to impress his roommates, their parents, his current lady friend. Now he makes it for his wife, Kate. With a side of whipped potatoes and a vinaigrette salad, all you need is a decadent chocolate cake to finish off the meal.
Rachel’s Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried)
4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
Salt and Pepper
- Preheat the broiler
- Spray the rack of a broiler pan with nonstick spray
- Mix the brown sugar, mustard and dill together in a small bowl.
- Salt and pepper both sides of the salmon and place on the broiler pan and spoon the brown sugar glaze on top. (You will not use all of it – it keeps forever in the fridge)
- Position the broiler pan about 7 inches from the heat and broil just until its opaque, about 6 minutes
NOTE: Don’t turn the fillet. The glaze works well on chicken and pork.
