Salmon with Rasberry Jalapeno Glaze

I've been in a preserving craze this summer. I'm stockpiling all sorts of jellies, pickles and syrups which I'm going to give as gifts this Christmas. One of the things I preserved was jalapeno jelly with raspberries. I broke open a jar today and decided to try it on salmon. Heaven. Pure heaven. You need to try this -- it's super simple and you can used a purchased jalapeno jelly if you don't want to make your own.


1 Salmon fillet (I buy mine at Costco -- they are consistently good.)
jalapeno/raspberry jelly (my recipe listed here, or you can purchase your own)
salt
pepper

Directions:

Turn on the broiler in your oven (or you can use a grill)

Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the salmon on the foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.

Place about 3 tablespoons of the jalapeno jelly in a small glass dish and microwave for about 30 seconds to melt.

Brush the jelly over the salmon.

Place the salmon on the middle rack of the oven and broil for 4 minutes.

Remove the salmon from the oven and turn using a spatula.

Brush the salmon with the remaining jelly and return to the oven for 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and carefully check to ensure that the salmon is done to your likeness.

Use any leftovers in scrambled eggs for breakfast. Yum!

Serves 4.
