Fruit glazes are an incredibly easy way to spruce up salmon. Serve this with steamed green vegetables and brown rice.
Ingredients:
Glaze:
1 1/2 cups apricot nectar (juice)
1/3 cup dried apricots, chopped
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Lowfat cooking spray
1 12-ounce fresh skinless salmon fillet, about an inch thick*
Directions:
1 In a small saucepan, stir in all ingredients for the glaze then bring to boiling at medium-high then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2 Move oven rack to about 4 inches below broiler then turn on broiler. Spray a broiler pan with lowfat cooking spray then center salmon on pan then broil for about 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
3 Use a pastry brush to baste the fish with some of the apricot glaze every 3-4 minutes. 3. Serve salmon with glaze.
4 ENJOY!
