The Best (And Easiest!) Salmon Recipe Ever

One day I watched the Food Network for all of 5 minutes and it completely changed my life (exaggeration….kind of). I threw on the Food Network while doing my makeup and found myself half-watching the Quick and Easy episode of The Kitchen. And then, this:

This is Katie Lee’s Brown Sugar Spiced Salmon Recipe. It is heaven. She says it takes 20 minutes total to make and it really does. Prep to cook. 20 minutes. Done.

I threw this together with a bag of salad – the Fresh Express Asian Chopped Salad kit (my all time favorite -I add Craisins). It went over so well that now I make it at least once a week.

If you’re in need of a quick dinner, check it out. It was too good not to share and is the best salmon I’ve ever had. And I made it. I know, I’m as shocked as you are.

    It is an awesome recipe, I have made a similar one with Chipotle Chili powder instead of the regular chili powder and a drizzle of maple syrup on top. Seriously TO DIE FOR. It’s amazing.

    • Amanda West

      Could you share the recipe for yours too? Lol. That sounds awesome too! How long do you bake yours and at what temp?

  • V

    Holy sugar! That’s a lot of….sugar! But it looks uh-maze-ing. Yup, the salad totally balances it out. For sure.

    Making it tonight! Thanks for the suggestion.


  • I love salmon and I’m always looking for new ways to cook it. I watch the Food Network constantly so I’m surprised I missed this recipe. Ironically.. even though I watch food shows all the time, I don’t really cook that often.. #lazycook

  • This looks delicious!

  • I am definitely saving this recipe. I love salmon and I’m always looking for new ways to make it. I swear the Food Network is amazing.

  • I LOVE salmon. i might need to make this tonight!

  • Um that looks delicious. Do you just sprinkle the brown sugar over the salmon? Sounds so easy! I will be making this sometime…yummo!

  • This looks delicious. Salmon is one of my go to meals when I have to pretend like I know how to cook. I’m for sure going to try this next time though!

  • Oooo this looks SO good!

  • Brianne Bracco

    YUM!!! I bake salmon a lot, but mostly use lemon juice and lemon pepper…this looks just as easy and even more delicious…I’m going to try it out!

  • That sounds amazing!

    I make tilapia tacos or burrito bowls a la Chipotle style and use a brown sugar, herb, and spice mix. I never would have thought sweet tasting fish would be good. I’ve never really had salmon, but I know I should give it a try.

  • this looks simply delish! I’m totally going to have to check it out 🙂

  • My mouth was watering through this whole post. In love with salmon, absolutely in love… have to try this!

  • This looks and sounds amazing, yum!

    it seems like it would be very dry. Is it?

    • Josanna

      Not at all!

  • Judy Jones

    Made it tonight. It was very good and everyone loved it. I put a bunch of asparagus on the pan with the salmon. Came out just right and very delish.

  • Josanna

    Call me stupid, but where’s the recipe? What is used besides brown sugar and how is it cooked/baked? Help!

    • Lynn Pinkstaff

      I’m must be stupid too! I can’t find the directions either.

      • Josanna

        I ‘m glad I wasn’t the only one! Anyway your have to go to and then in their search bar type Salmon recipes by Katie Lee. Hope that helps!
