Glazed Salmon with Peaches

Glazed Salmon with Peaches

Who would refuse the tree-ripened, fresh, big, juicy, plump, and sweet peaches? Unless you are allergic to peaches, I haven’t met anyone who wouldn’t like peaches when served. Unfortunately peaches are so seasonal, which means it is very difficult to access fresh peaches in the middle of winter. (In some areas you might be able to, but they won’t taste like summer peaches in season).

Luckily, we have a solution. The next best thing to fresh summer peaches is the Del Monte® canned peaches. They are garden quality and tasty to use in many recipes, not to mention their convenience to stock up in your pantry.

 

Del Monte peach chunks

I have used Del Monte® canned fruits in dessert recipes many times and have always been pleased with the results. Today, I would like to share a recipe that can use these great canned peaches in a healthy main course; the Glazed Salmon with Peaches.

 

Glazed Salmon with Peaches

Salmon is perfect protein choice to pair with fruits. The tender, flaky meat is very moist, the peaches brings irresistible fragrance and mellow flavor, and the whole grain mustard glaze binds the two to pair perfectly.

When I served this meal to my kids, they all approved its flavor and devoured the entire salmon. My 13-year-old daughter commented, “It is savory with a hint of sweetness.” The recipe is very simple and easy to put together. You will have a delicious and healthy dinner within 25 minutes from start to finish. Shall we start?

Get your beautiful salmon fillet ready. Transfer it into a greased baking pan.

 

tutorial-1

Drain a can of Del Monte® Yellow Cling Peach Chunks Heavy Syrup, reserving 1 tablespoon of its syrup.

 

tutorial-2

In a small sauce pan, combine brown sugar, butter and the reserved syrup.

 

tutorial-3

Bring the pan over medium heat, melt the brown sugar in the butter. Remove the pan from the heat.

 

tutorial-4

Add the whole grain mustard, soy sauce, olive oil,

 

tutorial-6

grated fresh ginger, a little salt, and some black pepper. Mix it all up to make a beautiful glaze.

 

tutorial-8

Brush half the amount of glaze on the salmon.

 

tutorial-9

Coat the drained peaches with the remaining glaze,

and then dump them over the salmon.

 

tutorial-11

Bake in the preheated 425 degree F (220 C) oven for 15-18 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon. Then take the pan out, move the rack to the top position, turn your oven to broiler setting on high, and return the salmon to oven and continue to broil for 5-7 minutes. Make sure you watch carefully so it doesn’t burn.

 

tutorial-12

Broiling the last few minutes at the end of cooking time will set the glaze nicely on the salmon. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then sprinkle a little cilantro on the top. Serve the salmon warm over rice and your meal is ready.

    Salmon really does pair well with fruit. This looks like a wonderful recipe! I buy most fruit fresh, but canned pineapple can be really useful to have on hand – I have a couple of recipes that uses it. Anyway, good stuff – thanks.

        It did not want to have sounded bad-mannered, excuse me if this way it has been. The English is not my mother language and I commit failures.

    I always have canned pears in my pantry. In addition, I have peaches and pineapple (both fruit and just juice). On the more savory side, I have various beans, tomatoes and peas.

      Oh, that is very hard question. Mustard is one of the key ingredient in this recipe, and I am not sure what would be good to substitute with. I think the whole grain mustard is not overly powerful in terms of taste compare to other types, such as dijon mustard, the flavor mellows down quite a lot when cooked. Do you want to give it a try to see if he still hates it?

    • says

      Hi Marlyzen
      Thank you for your link and the credit. Your salmon looks so lovely. Congratulation on your new blog and welcome to the food community!
