This is delicious, fast, and so very good for you! If you can, always purchase wild salmon because it should be 100% natural in flavor, color and Omega-3 content.
This glaze takes three minutes to make and its sweetness is a perfect complement to the fish.
I always make an extra fillet or two so I can make salmon salad sandwiches the next day for lunches. I just add a bit of mayonnaise and finely chopped pickles. My boys love this with a slice of Swiss cheese melted over it, too!
- 1/4 cup apricot jam
- 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
- Salt and pepper
- 4 (5-ounce) salmon fillets
Turn the oven to broil and make sure the rack is not at the highest level; the lowest level is best, a good distance below the fire. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, make the glaze by cooking the jam with the soy sauce until it begins to bubble and has noticeably thinned in texture, about three minutes.
Place the fillets on the foil-lined baking sheet and season them with salt and pepper. Then use a pastry brush or a spoon to thinly coat the top of each fillet with the glaze. Place in the broiler for about six minutes. The top should be slightly browned, and the center of each fillet should be slightly translucent.
Add a bit more of the glaze to the fillets and serve!
