Glazed Salmon Ingredients

  • 1 bag Earl Grey tea or jasmine or black tea
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 medium zucchini sliced into half-moons
  • Salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon quartered
  • 1 300-gram fillet salmon (use loin part), skin removed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves chopped


  • Pour ½ cup hot water over tea bag and allow to steep for 5 minutes. Discard bag.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add tea and sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until mixture is reduced.
  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add zucchini and cook for about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Squeeze a lemon wedge over zucchini. Set aside.
  • Heat remaining oil in another pan. Cook salmon for 4 to 5 minutes on one side. (If fish sticks to the pan when you try to lift it, cook it a bit more. It s done when it comes off easily.) Turn and cook the other side for about 2 minutes.
  • Add tea mixture to the pan. Spoon mixture over salmon to coat and cook until your preferred doneness is achieved. Transfer fish to a plate.
  • Continue cooking sauce until it thickens slightly into a glaze. Pour over salmon.
  • Serve salmon with zucchini and lemon wedges on the side. Top with tarragon.
