A little brown sugar, some aromatic spices and lots of heat: That’s all that it takes to coat flaky salmon fillets with the most delicious glaze. The fish cooks quickly on the grill or in a grill pan which gives you just enough time to toss together a salad – and have dinner on the table in 17 minutes.
The bright, Mediterranean flavors of this dish make healthy eating easy. Make sure you use chicken thighs for this recipe; they stay moist and juicy under the high heat of the boiler.
