1 1/2 cups
chopped dried apricots
reduced sodium soy sauce
grated fresh ginger
1 (3/4 pound)
salmon filet without skin
Great recipe! I substituted 1 cup apricot jam and 1/2 cup water for the nectar and dried apricots and 1 tsp ground ginger for the fresh. I only used half the glaze on the salmon and used the rest on boneless chicken breasts that I cooked on the grill. Both got rave reviews from my husband! Plan to try it on pork chops next. Definitely a keeper!
I expected better. In my opinion, just a decent dish.
This recipe was fantastic. Very quick and easy. I didn't have cayenne pepper so I used dried red chili peppers instead. The cinnamon and peppers really compliment the apricots. Will definitely make this again, maybe using chicken next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
Made this first in 2004 (I always make notes on my recipes :) and followed the directions exactly --- and loved it. Just made it again last night. Rather than broil/baste, I decided to pour all the sauce on the filets (which I had in a small baking dish) and bake for about 20 minutes. Less fuss - and just as great.
Very good! sauce was also very good on broiled tofu. Looks very impressive without a lot of effort.
Loved this salmon recipe! I didn't have any apricot nector or dried apricots in the house (and didn't feel like running to the store again), but I did have chunky apricot preserves...I used about a cup of the preserves and a cup of water and omitted the honey (because of the sugar in the preserves)...it worked! It was delishhhh! Definite keeper! Thank you!
Oh my! I couldn't stop eating this salmon! It was so good! I made a few changes according to what I had on hand. Instead of Apricot nectar, I used about a half cup of preserves and a half cup of water. I used more dried apricots, about 3/4 of a cup, chopped. I only had dried ginger and garlic, and used about 1/4 tsp. of ginger and 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder. The flavor was amazing! All my kids ate it without any complaints (and two can tend to be picky about salmon.) I did have to watch it under the broiler though. After broiling for about 10 minutes, I baked it for another 10 on 350 since the rest of my dinner wasn't yet done.
Thanks so much!
I tried this recipe over the Memorial Day weekend. My teenager asked me to use peach nectar instead of the apricots. It was delicious. It presented and tasted like an entree that I'd order on a cruise ship! My son has a very discriminating palatte and he devoured most of the salmon. This recipe is a keeper. I think I'll try it with chicken wings next time.
