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

We started off with a 1 1/2 pound salmon fillet

We trimmed the belly fat off , along with the very end section closest to the tail

Our dog Pippin will be happy to get these cooked scraps!

  Lets cut the remaining salmon into even portions

We are going to leave the skin on and just easily remove it after cooking

Next we will need some Southwestern Dry Rub

Start by sprinkling 1 tablespoon on each portion and then add more as needed

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

Preheat your oven to 400 F

Put the salmon in the oven for 4-5 minutes to start

Next we will need some pepper jelly

There are many different kinds

I’m using jalapeno because there is some heat and some sweet which is perfect for this dish

It’s time to remove the salmon 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 over a bed of rice with some fresh chopped scallions!

Directions

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)

Serve over a bed of rice and top with scallions
