Low-FODMAP Bourbon Whiskey Glazed Salmon; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Serves 6

Prep time: 10 min, plus 30 min for marinating

Grill/Broil time: 15-20 min

Total time: 1 hour


  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (about 2 ounces) bourbon whiskey or other preferred whiskey
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (gluten-free)
  • 4 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic infused olive-oil
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 (4-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick), or one 24 ounce piece of salmon with skin on


  • Combine first 8 ingredients (everything except salmon) in a large zip-top plastic bag.  Mix to combine, then add the salmon fillets
  • Seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning bag once
  • Remove fillets from bag; discard marinade
  • Preheat broiler to high or set grill to medium-high heat
  • Lay salmon fillets on aluminum foil lined baking sheet and place in oven on middle rack; if grilling place on grill safe pan or wrapped in foil with opening at the top to prevent salmon from falling apart
  • Cook about 10-15 minutes depending on desired doneness (I prefer salmon rare)
  • Serve immediately, garnished with fresh limes if desired.
  • So tender, sweet and delicious!  Enjoy this with my low-FODMAP Rice/Quinoa Medley too.
