I’m always looking for new ways to serve salmon – gotta get that Vitamin D, right? :)

Most of the time, salmon here takes an Asian spin with soy, honey, etc. but when I was scanning the fridge for some inspiration, the apricot preserves caught my eye. Preserves + dijon = an amazing sounding salmon. It’s incredibly easy to mix together, top and bake!

Flavorful and light, it is a meal perfect for spring. (Whenever Spring should decide to show up! :) )

Apricot & Dijon Glazed Salmon - 2 servings

  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 salmon filets

Combine apricot preserves, dijon mustard, oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

Divide mixture over two salmon filets and broil on medium-high for about 10-12 minutes, until cooked through.

Serve with a side of veggies and brown rice.

    Apricot is hands down one of my favorite flavors ever! I totally will be trying this glaze on tofu sometime this week!

    This looks delicious, Emily! I love the simplicity of the recipe. I don’t have apricot preserves on hand, but I bet raspberry glazed salmon would be tasty too!

    What a great idea! I’ll definitley be trying this. I’m the same way with salmon, always looking for something new.

    I make this exact same recipe, except with chicken!!

    If I want to switch up the flavor a bit, I swap the apricot for figs, or even for maple! The sweet + tangy combo can’t be beat :)
