Bourbon Glazed Salmon is a regular contender for Sunday night dinners. I typically serve it with corn on the cob in the summer and smashed fingerling potatoes in the winter. It also goes well with roasted broccoli. The ingredient list for this recipe is not long so it’s a simple dish to pull together quickly. You can either roast it in the oven for 9-10 minutes at 400 degrees (as described in the recipe below) or cook it on the stove with a nonstick sprayed pan (my preferred way as the glaze develops a nice crust):
