Peach-Glazed Salmon Recipe

Publisher Photo
A local restaurant used fresh peaches to garnish a salmon dish, which gave me this idea for grilling the fish we catch. It’s a beautiful presentation and quick to prepare. —Valerie Homer, Juneau, Alaska

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 26, 2010

I lost this recipe during a move to our new house, and during this time, I tried to remember the ingredients. Instead of garlic, I used horseradish. And I thought it was apricot jam, not peaches in the recipe. So, when I came to your website and found the original recipe, I can't wait to make it just like you say!! But, if you are out of peaches and don't like garlic, my version was also very good!
