Salmon lovers will really enjoy this nice and fruity tasting fish with just the right amount of sweetness. If salmon is new to your family, this is a great way to introduce it to them. Charlene Chambers - Ormond Beach, Florida


  • 6 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup apricot spreadable fruit
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
