Not only is Alicia Keys and singer and musician, but she’s also a good cook apparently.
The “Girl on Fire” singer shared her and her mother Terria Joseph‘s very own Thanksgiving Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon recipe with InStyle magazine.
Now salmon isn’t a conventional dish for Thanksgiving, but Keys makes this recipe worth making for the big day or for any holiday for that matter.
“It’s just so fun to listen to music and be in the kitchen all day creating this beautiful meal that everyone will eat together.” Keys told InStyle.
Looks like Keys’ son Egypt is in store for several holiday dishes as the years go by.
Check out the recipe below and if you try it out, post a photo of your completed dish in the comments section.
• 8 6 oz. salmon fillets
• 1 lemon, cut into wedges
• 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
• 1/8 tsp nutmeg
• 1/8 tsp cinnamon
• 2 tbsp garlic powder
• ¾ tsp salt
• 1 tbsp onion powder
• 1/8 tsp black pepper
• ¼ cup soy sauce
• ½ cup grade-B maple syrup
- Rinse and dry salmon fillets; rub each with lemon wedge. Brush 2 tsp oil on the flesh side of salmon (to help seasoning adhere).
- In bowl, mix nutmeg, cinnamon, garlic powder, salt, onion powder and black pepper. Sprinkle each fillet with spice mix; let sit covered in fridge for 1 hour.
- Heat skillet and coat bottom with 2 tsp oil.
- When oil is hot, place salmon in skillet, flesh side down, and cook over high heat for about 4 minutes or until brown. Turn over and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
- In a saucepan, mix together soy sauce and maple syrup over medium heat until sauce is think enough to coat the back of a spoon (about 7 to 10 minutes).
- Drizzle sauce over salmon fillets and serve.
