Old Neighborhood Restaurant Salmon with
Apricot Almond Mustard Glaze
- 2 pounds salmon filet
- 1 (8-ounce) jar apricot preserves
- 2 tablespoons country-style Dijon mustard (with seeds)
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 small package slivered or sliced almonds, toasted
- Put all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and gradually heat to a boil. (If
you desire thinner consistency, add 1 tablespoon water and stir.) Remove pan from
heat and allow to cool.
- Divide sauce into two bowls, one to use for brushing glaze on the salmon for
cooking, the other for serving extra sauce on the cooked salmon.
- Grill, broil or bake salmon glazed lightly but evenly in sauce. (Cook fish about
10 minutes per inch.)
- To toast almonds, place on baking sheet and cook in a 325-degree oven about 10
minutes until browned (check frequently to make sure they're not overbrowning).
- Serve cooked salmon with a spoonful of extra sauce on top and a sprinkle of toasted
almonds. Or, serve with rice, stirring almonds into rice after cooking.
