Here, the trick is that the salmon is broiled, meaning a quick cooking time, buttery flaky results, and no fishy smell in the kitchen. During the last couple minutes of broiling the salmon, brush it with a glaze made from brown sugar and low-sodium soy sauce or tamari. The sweet-salty sauce starts to caramelize on top of each fillet (and the sliced red onions cooked alongside), turning irresistibly sticky and slightly crisp.


  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 cup long-grain white rice

  • 1 head broccoli, florets only, chopped (about 2 cups)

  • 4 pieces skinless salmon fillet (1 1/4 pounds total)

  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • kosher salt and black pepper


  1. Heat broiler. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and soy sauce. Set aside.

  2. Cook the rice according to the package directions, stirring in the broccoli during the last 3 minutes.

  3. Let the rice and broccoli stand off the heat until the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

  4. Meanwhile, place the salmon and onion on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the oil and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

  5. Broil until the salmon is opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes, spooning half the soy sauce glaze over the fish during the last 2 minutes of cooking.

  6. Serve the salmon and onion with the rice and the remaining glaze.
