- 1 cup butter, cubed
- 1 cup peach preserves
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 2 salmon fillets (1 pound each)
- 1/2 cup chopped peeled fresh peaches or frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and preserves. Cover and microwave on high for 45-60 seconds. Stir in the lime juice, garlic and mustard until blended. Cool. Set aside 1 cup for basting and serving.
- Place salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag; add remaining peach mixture. Seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate for 20 minutes.
- Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Place salmon skin side down on grill rack.
- Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Spoon half of reserved peach mixture over salmon. Grill 10-15 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting frequently. Serve with sliced peaches and remaining peach mixture. Yield: 8 servings.

Reviews for Peach-Glazed Salmon
"Absolutely delicious!!! Extremely easy!!!"
"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!"
