"I was inspired by the locavore in me since the cherries were in season and I wanted to make something other than pie. If you are feeding hearty eaters, you could increase the fillets to 6; however the glaze would not need to be increased. This can be served with brown rice and a steamed veggie medley...in season of course ; ) or if you want an 'improvalicious' idea, see the footnotes." — Homage

2 1/2 cups
fresh cherries, pitted and quartered
red wine vinegar
4 (5 ounce)
salmon fillets, about 1 inch thick
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Used fresh Bing cherries and grilled the salmon- turned out great! The kids weren't sure at first (cherries on salmon, mom??) but they really liked it and so did the adults. Good, different and savory use for cherries. Would be good on chicken or pork as well.
Loved the sauce: just used a can of cherry pie filling plus recipe's original directions. Something we'll make again for a change, but didn't like the somewhat fishy flavor.
I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious and easy to make. Even my toddler liked it which is saying a lot since she typically won’t touch fish. The adults loved it too.
Made this last night for friends. It was great! Fresh and summery, we really enjoyed it! A real different taste for salmon.
I actually would like to rate this 3.5 stars. The cherry glaze had a very subtle taste. I added a little shallot to it and increased the honey but it still didn't pop. I had to use Ahi tuna because the market was out of salmon, but I didn't allow a difference in fish to affect my rating. Not sure how else to make it better, but an improved glaze would be tasty on fish and pork.
It was okay but I was expecting more. The cherry glaze added only a subtle flavor to the fish which I was a little disappointed in. Might need a few tweaks to improve the recipe.
My boyfriend loved this recipe! I made a few modifications that worked out very well. 1. I substituted chicken for salmon 2. I marinated the chicken before baking with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper 3. I substituted balsamic vinegar for the red wine 4. I didn't have butter, so I used a dollop of butter spread. It was wonderful!
