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!
Let’s 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
Continue until they are all nicely coated
I like the salmon to sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the rub to settle in
Preheat the 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
Give them all a good glazing
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!

Sprinkle each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon of Southwestern Dry Rub and then add more as needed. Let the salmon sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the rub to settle in
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)
