Salmon with Hickory Syrup

Serves 4:

1 lb. of salmon fillet

Salt

Garlic

Garlic powder

Chili powder (optional)

Sutton Mill Creek Original, Brandy, or Bourbon Hickory Syrup (1 tbsp)

Soy sauce (1 tbsp)

Teriyaki sauce (1 tbsp)

Olive oil (1 tbsp)

Cut salmon fillet into 4 pieces. Pat dry. Sprinkle with a little salt, garlic power and chili powder (optional). In a bowl, mix 1 tablespoon each of soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, olive oil, and Hickory Syrup. Add this mixed sauce to the 4 pieces of salmon. Coat evenly on both sides of the fish. Let them sit at room temperature for 10-15 mins (in the refrigerator if you don't plan to cook them within 10-15 mins). Heat the pan at high heat, add some olive oil, minced garlic, then add the salmon. Make sure to lower the heat to medium and continue cooking 5-7 minutes on each side. Add the remaining left over sauce to the pan and continue simmering for another 3-6 minutes.

Note: this recipe could also be applied to chicken breasts (thin cut), pork chops (thin cut), shrimp, tilapia or other fish, etc. (for best taste, marinade chicken or pork overnight).
