  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • 1 ounce ginger, grated and divided in half
  • 1 large garlic clove, pressed
  • 2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons whiskey
  • 2 Tablespoons dry vermouth
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 scallion, minced for garnish, optional


  • In a small saucepan, combine ½ of the grated ginger, garlic, soy sauce, whiskey, vermouth, and brown sugar. Cook over medium-high heat until it reduces to about half, 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and rest of the ginger. (If your family isn't wild about a strong ginger flavor, then only add ½ of the remaining ginger.)
  • Let the sauce cool.
  • Preheat oven to 250ºF.
  • Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper or brush with olive oil.
  • Place the salmon on the prepared sheet skin side down and pat dry. Using a pastry brush, brush a some of the glaze over the top.
  • Let the fish marinate with the glaze for 5 minutes then brush another Tablespoon of the glaze on top and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Put the pan in oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Brush another Tablespoon of the glaze on top of the salmon and roast another 10 minutes.
  • Continue cooking and repeating with the glaze until the fish is cooked through to your liking. For fish that is about 1-inch thick, it may take 30 to 40 minutes, depending on how well done you like your fish.
  • Serve garnished with the minced scallion, if desired.
