In previous post talked about utilizing honey and old bay on some salmon. Anyone have experience making a bourbon type glaze with honey or other elements that's good on salmon? I have some makers mark on hand.

    I have done Kahlua and Canadian maple syrup and a little turbindo sugar and it is eggtastic.

    From time to time I do this on cedar plank

    1 1/2 lbs salmon fillet
    1/2 cup honey
    1/2 cup real maple syrup
    1/2 cup quality bourbon
    2 tablespoons olive oil

    I don't know if I would waste maker's on a cook (' cept me). I agree with hapster.

  • I've done a little concoction of butter, brown sugar and bourbon before. It was good. But I'm not sure the bourbon made a significant contribution when the butter and brown sugar are good on their own. Although if you're serving it to guests you can put the smallest splash in the brown sugar and butter just so you can mention it in the name and entice them. It sounds fancy. 

    But ultimately I like salmon with just a little salt and pepper. I agree with just drinking the bourbon.

    I wouldn't cook with anything I wouldn't drink, this is the same reason I don't use cooking wine.I have a bourbon chicken recipe that turns out the best with Four Roses, and I only use Woodford Reserve for Bourbon balls at Christmas.

    @esdd-gotta love your dedication to the bourbon. Your selections definitely elevate the ingredients of the respective cooks.  I will refrain from suggesting any to drink as it may find its way into one of your top-tier recipes-all in good fun. :)>-

    Your best bet is to use Kosher salt and ground black pepper on the fish... Put the Makers Mark on a few ice cubes.

    I'm not big on honey on salmon, but have used this maple syrup marinade. Make sure marinade is only for 20-30 minutes. 
    3/4-1 c maple syrup (I like it a little less sweet so I use 3/4 c)
    3-4 oz bourbon
    1/4 c soy sauce
    2 Tbs fresh lime juice
    1 Tbs minced ginger root
    2-3 cloves garlic crushed
    1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

    Serve salmon with lime or lemon slices....

    Really interesting thread. Don't know if I'd want to waste any of my Knob Creek on food, rather save it for me on a large ball.
    Tried a 6 yr old Russel Reserve Rye last night and it was really great. Anyone else tried this?
