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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
