Besides the regular chicken or big juicy burger, we wanted to share this simple preparation for salmon. Meaty fish like salmon or monkfish are a good combination with the robust flavors of the sauce. Pares well with some roasted potatoes or veggies.
Salmon, in steaks or whole filets
Maple Espresso BBQ Sauce 1 bottle
Salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lay salmon on a baking tray, either in a whole flay or cut steaks. Season the top with some salt and then rub a dollop of Maple Espresso BBQ Sauce over the surface of the salmon. When the oven is heated place the tray on the top rack of the oven. Let bake for five to eight minutes. At this point the fish will start to cook and the glaze will thicken and start to caramelize. If you like a thicker glazed finish you can apply more sauce at this point. Return the fish to the oven and bake another ten minutes and check if the fish is done, either with a thermometer reading of 140 - 150 or by gently squeezing the fish to check if it is firm. If you like a darker and stickier crust you can use the broiler for a few minutes at the end. Let cool a few moments and cut.
