Seafood

Apricot and Dijon Glazed Salmon

  G loves fish.  It’s a wonderful thing, because it motivates us to have it often, something we struggled with before he started expressing his delight in it.  I like fish, but it’s never something that jumps up and down screaming “make me, make me!” when I’m making my menu.  Probably because it’s seldom covered in cheese.  Luckily I tried this anyhow.
1/3 c apricot preserves
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp soy sauce*
salt & pepper
2 salmon fillets
*not in the original recipe, we used it to thin the sauce
  Combine all of your ingredients except for your salmon together and spread it over the fillets.  Place everything on a broiler sheet (covered in tin foil…you’ll thank me later) and cook it under the broiler for 10-12 minutes.
  This has a wonderful, almost teriyaki like sweetness to it, and I love how simple it is to make.  The process reminds me a lot of my mom’s flank steak.  Even I can’t get bored with cooking when it only takes 10 minutes.
  This recipe went over wonderfully with everybody.  G actually begged for seconds after having his dessert he liked it so much.  I ate more than I probably ought to have and am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!
