Peach-Glazed Salmon Recipe

Peach-Glazed Salmon Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. Place salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag; add remaining peach mixture. Seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate for 20 minutes.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.
