    Serves: 4 

    • 1 1/2 cups apricot juice
    • 60g dried apricots, diced
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 2 tablespoons reduced salt soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
    • 4 salmon fillets

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:42min 

    1. Preheat the oven grill. Grease a baking tray, or line with baking paper.
    2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the apricot juice, dried apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to a 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 fillets on the prepared 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.

    Great recipe! I substituted 1 cup apricot jam and 1/2 cup water for the nectar and dried apricots and 1 tsp ground ginger for the fresh. I only used half the glaze on the salmon and used the rest on boneless chicken breasts that I cooked on the grill. Both got rave reviews from my husband! Plan to try it on pork chops next. Definitely a keeper!  -  02 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made this first in 2004 (I always make notes on my recipes and followed the directions exactly --- and loved it. Just made it again last night. Rather than broil/baste, I decided to pour all the sauce on the filets (which I had in a small baking dish) and bake for about 20 minutes. Less fuss - and just as great.  -  12 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was fantastic. Very quick and easy. I didn't have cayenne pepper so I used dried red chili peppers instead. The cinnamon and peppers really compliment the apricots. Will definitely make this again, maybe using chicken next time. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  22 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
