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.

  1. Low-FODMAP Bourbon Glazed Salmon

    This recipe was awesome! My husband was diagnosed with a severe case of UC a couple of months ago and trying to find food that he can eat and actually like has been difficult. He normally doesn’t care a lot for Salmon but had some at Applebees before we knew he was so sick and really liked it. Your recipe was even better and the fact that it is “Low-FODMAP” makes it even better! He actually wants to have it again tomorrow. I am grateful to have stumbled across your recipes and look forward to trying some other ones for him.(and me!) Thank you!! Deb Herrera Arboles, Colorado

  2. I have never been very enthusiastic about salmon. I would eat it, but it was a “meh” food. Until now. This recipe was fantastic and my salmon loving fiancé and I ate every bite. I boiled the leftover marinade until it was thickened and poured it over salmon and rice at the end, since I like to keep things saucy!

    Dr. Rachel, I can’t thank you enough for these great recipes! I had a bit of a meltdown this weekend starting the fodmap elimination phase, and not being able to indulge on my usual takeout favorites. Finding recipes that are not glorified bird food has cheered me up immensely.

    1. Katie,
      Awesome!!! So happy you loved the salmon 🙂

  3. Yummy

    This was delicious and was more than done in 10 minutes in the broiler. I put chopped chives and toasted sesame seeds on top of the cooked salmon. Yum.

    1. Hi there!
      If you consult the most up to date information located in the Monash app, 30ml (4 ounces) of whiskey is a low-FODMAP serving. Thanks for your concern!
