Salmon with Rasberry Jalapeno Glaze
I've been in a preserving craze this summer. I'm stockpiling all sorts of jellies, pickles and syrups which I'm going to give as gifts this Christmas. One of the things I preserved was jalapeno jelly with raspberries. I broke open a jar today and decided to try it on salmon. Heaven. Pure heaven. You need to try this -- it's super simple and you can used a purchased jalapeno jelly if you don't want to make your own.
1 Salmon fillet (I buy mine at Costco -- they are consistently good.)
jalapeno/raspberry jelly (my recipe listed here, or you can purchase your own)
Turn on the broiler in your oven (or you can use a grill)
Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the salmon on the foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Place about 3 tablespoons of the jalapeno jelly in a small glass dish and microwave for about 30 seconds to melt.
Brush the jelly over the salmon.
Place the salmon on the middle rack of the oven and broil for 4 minutes.
Remove the salmon from the oven and turn using a spatula.
Brush the salmon with the remaining jelly and return to the oven for 4 to 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and carefully check to ensure that the salmon is done to your likeness.
Use any leftovers in scrambled eggs for breakfast. Yum!
