Sweet and Smokey Salmon Filet

Do you like fish?  It seems as though a person is a fish person or not.  No middle ground.  I happen to love fish, all kinds, especially anchovies on pizza, its my favorite topping, really!  I also love calamari and stuffed clams.  Last night I made this sweet and smokey salmon filet.

Its super easy, I always have salmon in the freezer (one of the only fish my kids like).  I buy a large filet when it is on sale, cut it into portions and freeze it.  That way, I always have something on hand I can make for dinner.  When making this dish, I take the filets right out of the freezer and into the baking pan.


I mix the butter, brown sugar and liquid smoke in a small bowl and then pour it over the salmon filets.  You need to spread it quickly as the frozen salmon makes it difficult to spread.  That’s it, then pop it in the oven and you have just made a wonderful dinner of sweet and smokey salmon filet!
