Pacific Northwest Honey Glazed Salmon Recipe

August 3, 2016

Let me start by saying that I am not a huge fish fan.  I want to like it.  I’m a Northwest girl.  Fish is our thing!  It’s healthy and good for me.  My husband is a fly fisherman and catches trout, then makes it this big ritual to clean it, put it on the grill, and have it for breakfast.  I know I should like fish, especially the ones he catches, but it’s just, well… not easy.

But then I tried this salmon recipe and DEVOURED it!  Not kidding.  Loved it so much.  Which is not normal for me.  I was in charge of our last cooking group and knew I needed to throw in a couple of fish options for summer.  So I scoured my cookbooks, and eventually landed on one that I could modify a bit. This is the result.

So, for all of you fish-haters out there- even YOU may like this one!  And for those of you who love salmon already…. well, to you it will be just a little slice of heaven.


Pacific Northwest Salmon Recipe


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 center cut salmon fillet
  • 3/4 t. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 c. honey
  • 1 t. liquid smoke (optional)


  1. Mix all ingredients together and pour over salmon. Marinate 1 hour. Grill over hot coals, or broil in the oven for 10 min. or until the salmon flakes with a fork.
  2. *I know that is a whole lotta butter. You can cut it in half, replace with olive oil, or just go whole hog! Up to you!
