Apricot-Balsamic Glazed Salmon (pdf)

Serves 2



  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

  3. 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.
