> 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
> 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
> 1/2 medium white onion
> 1 tbsp minced garlic
> 2 tbsp tomato paste
> 2 tsp fresh minced thyme
> 1/2 cup Bourbon
> 1/4 cup maple syrup
> 1 tbsp mustard


Preheat a small sauce pan over medium heat and a 12 inch skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to each pan.
Grate the onion on a cheese grater or finely chop. Add onion to the sauce pot with the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring often. Add the tomato paste and minced thyme to the onion mixture, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes stirring often. Finally, add the bourbon, maple syrup and mustard to pot. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until slightly thickened.
Pat salmon fillets dry with a paper towel and season with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Add to the hot skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium and pour the maple-bourbon glaze directly on top of the salmon fillets. Continue to cook while basting the salmon in the glaze until fish flakes easily with a fork.
