Sweet and Savory Saturday – Broiled Salmon with Raspberry-Apricot Glaze

Broiled Salmon with Raspberry-Apricot Glaze served on a bed of mixed-greens is a great way to show the dad in your life you care on Father's Day.

Are you looking for a healthy Father’s Day meal to serve?  If so, try this recipe for Broiled Salmon with Raspberry-Apricot Glaze.  Salmon is a good source of the beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, protein, selenium, Vitamin B12, and potassium.  Pair it with Grilled Garlic Bread (recipe from Seared Food Blog*) and serve it on a bed of mixed-greens tossed with dried apricots and aged gouda cheese and you have a meal that lets the dad in your life know you care about him this Father’s Day.

Ingredients:

Salmon

  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed fresh garlic
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

Place salmon on large plate.  Rub garlic and sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over salmon fillets. Cover and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.  Meanwhile preheat the broiler and prepare the Raspberry-Apricot Glaze.

Raspberry-Apricot Glaze

  • 1/2 cup raspberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 TBS dark amber honey
  • 1/2 -3/4 TBS steak sauce (amount based on taste preference)
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed

In a small sauce pan, combine first four ingredients and cook on medium-low heat until it just begins to boil.  Reduce heat, add garlic, and simmer for 1-2 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Set aside.

Preparation

Coat broiling pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Place salmon fillets on broiling pan.  Broil for 2-3 minutes.  Spoon Raspberry-Apricot Glaze over the fillets.  Broil for 4-5 more minutes or until salmon flakes when tested with a fork.  Serve with Grilled Garlic Bread over a bed of mixed-greens tossed with pieces of dried apricots and aged gouda cheese. Note: I used an indoor grill set at a temperature of 375 degrees Fahrenheit to make my grilled garlic bread.
