This Baked Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze is fancy enough for a party but simple enough for a weeknight dinner. Start to finish it takes less than 30 minutes and the seasonings are amazing! Check out my salmon buying tips at the bottom to pick the perfect fish!
I only cook wild caught salmon. In the store you will see signs that say “farm raised” or “wild caught”. The farm raised is always light pink and washed out looking. The wild caught fish is a beautiful deep red. I think anybody can tell the difference in a blind taste test. The wild caught tastes fresh, with a light flavor but the farm raised is bland and has a strong “fish” taste. Wild caught is mostly available in the summer so enjoy it while it is in season!
