    About this recipe: Grilled salmon with a sweet and spicy glaze.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 335ml (12 fl oz) apricot juice
    • 55g (2 oz) dried apricots, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 2 tablespoons reduced salt soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 4 salmon fillets

    Method
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:42min 

    1. Preheat your oven's grill. Grease a baking tray, or line with baking parchment.
    2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the apricot juice, dried apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced by about half. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Remove 4 tablespoons of the glaze for basting, and set the remaining aside.
    3. Place the salmon fillet on the greased baking tray, and brush with glaze. Grill for 8 to 12 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Gently turn over once during cooking, and baste frequently during the last 4 minutes. Serve with a drizzle of the remaining glaze.

    I've been cooking this recipe regularly for a couple of years now. it's a quick and easy meal to make and tastes great. I use orange juice and pineapple juice 1/2 and 1/2 instead of apricot juice because I always have them in the store cupboard - 11 Dec 2015
