Apricot-Balsamic Glazed Salmon (pdf)


  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (6 ounce) salmon filets, skin removed



Preheat oven to 425° or pre-heat a grill. In small saucepan, heat preserves, vinegar, ginger, garlic and salt over low heat 3–4 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.


Remove from heat and cool slightly.


Place salmon fillets on a baking sheet, top with glaze and bake 10–12 minutes or just until salmon begins to flake. If using a grill, make a "pan" out of heavy duty aluminum foil, place the fish in the pan, top with glaze and grill for 10–12 minutes or until fish flakes.
