Apricot glazed salmon is right in time for dinner! Another delicious salmon recipe for all you fish lovers, because you truly cannot have enough salmon recipes.
This sweet & savory glaze is sweetened with apricot jam, and really brings out the flavor of the fish. Pair it with your favorite rice and the most delicious crispy roasted cabbage!
This simple apricot glaze goes so well with a flakey fillet of salmon. It’s got a sweet tang from the apricot jam, and is a definite crowd pleaser.
The longer you marinate the salmon, the better in my opinion. You can prep it in the morning, and stick it in the oven 30 minutes before dinner.
I love to serve it with brown rice and a side of veggies. Truly a weeknight staple in our house, and one of my favorite dinners!
What you’ll need to make the apricot glaze
- Apricot jam– I prefer using an apricot jam that’s naturally sweetened with fruit or fruit juice. If you don’t love apricots, or haven’t come across one you like, peach or orange jam would work great in this recipe
- Coconut aminos– coconut aminos is a staple in my kitchen as a soy sauce substitute. It’s significantly lower in sodium, and adds a subtle sweetness to any sauce or marinade!
- Dijon mustard
- Sesame oil
- Tapioca flour– similar to cornstarch or arrowroot, tapioca flour helps thicken the sauce to make it more of a thick glaze
Aside from salmon, this glaze would be delicious with chicken or even tofu. It’s simple to make, yet so flavorful!
I know I’m not the only one who aims to have dinner ready in as little time as possible, so this recipe is a must for anyone who’s in a pinch for time come dinner time.
It’s super simple, and feels fancier than it actually is! Enjoy, friends 🙂
