Today’s craft beer recipe is:

Zesty Porter Glazed Salmon

Using our seasonal Deadeye Jack porter, create a tasty glaze for baked salmon in minutes! The porter gives this traditional holiday seafood a deep and flavorful hint of malty chocolate while the citrus gives a mouth-pleasing tang.


  • 4 medium-large salmon filets

To make the glaze sauce you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup Deadeye Jack porter beer
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 garlice cloves, minced
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice or orange zest


  1. Whisk together the above ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Brush mix on top of four (thawed) salmon filets in a glass dish.
  3. Allow to marinate for about 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Boil remaining glaze mix in a saucepan until it is slightly thickened.
  5. Move salmon filets to a glass baking dish lined with foil.
  6. Pour thickened glaze onto on salmon and bake in oven for 12-15 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.
  7. Serve immediately with a side of rice, potatoes, veggies, salad, or breads.

Bon Appétit! Enjoy this dish with a hearty glass of Deadeye Jack porter for a taste bud sensation!
