½cup brown sugar
cup soy sauce
2tablespoons hoisin sauce
2tablespoons peeled and sliced ginger
Dried red pepper flakes
½teaspoon chopped garlic
1tablespoon fresh lime juice
1½ to 2pounds salmon fillets


Place the sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, dash of red pepper flakes, garlic, and lime juice in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the sauce forms a glaze. Set aside. Preheat the broiler. Place the salmon fillets on a broiler pan and baste with the sauce. Let sit for 15 minutes. Broil them until cooked through, about 8 minutes, basting again with the glaze. Remove the salmon from the heat and baste once more with the glaze before serving.
