Poached Alaskan Salmon

When we went to Alaska, I eavesdropped as the chefs were explaining the recipe for this delicious Alaskan dish, memorized it—playing the ingredients and their amounts over in my head, and smuggled it back home. I like to think of myself as a modern-day Samuel Slater.

Now it is here for you to enjoy. (PS. in this instance poached is not a reference to the cooking style.)

1 c butter
3/4 c brown sugar
2 tbs. soy sauce
3 tbs. lemon juice

Note: You might want to make extra sauce to dip

Melt butter and mix with brown sugar, soy sauce and lemon juice. Spread sauce over the salmon and grill*, basting it with more sauce as it cooks.

*If you can't or don't want to grill it, you can bake it in the oven at 450F for 10-15min.
