Pepper Jelly Glazed Salmon

Salmon is definitely one of my favorite fish to eat

So I’m always trying to figure out a new way to serve salmon that my family will love

I was trying to come up with a good glaze and I remembered we had a jar of pepper jelly my wife made and I thought that’s it!  This turned out so good, a little sweet, a little spicy, a lot of yum!

By the way you can find pepper jelly at local farm markets as well

I have a 1 1/2 pound salmon fillet, that I trimmed the belly fat off of, along with the very end section closest to the tail (our dog will be happy to get these cooked scraps)

For this particular dish I’m leaving the skin on the salmon.  I’m going to pre-cut my portions without cutting through the skin

Once I cook the salmon, I will be able to remove the fillets easily from the skin

I’m going to coat this with about 2-3 tablespoons of our South Western Dry Rub

I like the salmon to sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the rub to settle in

Next I place the salmon into a 400 F oven for about 4 minutes

Remove from the oven and apply some pepper jelly (I heated the jelly up a bit to make it easier to spread)

Place back into the oven and cook an additional 3-4 minutes or until a knife inserted into the thickest part of the fish comes out easy and clean

As promised the fish pulls easily away from it’s skin

We served this with Mexican Style Corn
