  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar Packed
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • ½ Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Bourbon
  • ½ Tablespoon Salt
  • ½ Tablespoon Pepper
  • 1 lb Salmon Filet


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan ( or other baking sheet with a rim ) with foil.
  • Mix all ingredients up to the salmon in a small bowl to form a paste.
  • Place the salmon on the foil-lined pan, and spread the paste on top of the salmon.
  • Bake for 8 minutes.
  • Baste the salmon with the now-liquid paste that melted off during the cooking process.
  • Return to the oven and bake for another 8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily.
  • Once the fish is cooked, remove it from the oven and baste again with the melted paste.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes, then serve.
