I you love salmon, and want a recipe that is easy and quick to put together, you will love this glazed salmon with peaches. Can you believe these beautiful looking glazed salmon is made with canned peaches?
Who would refuse the tree-ripened, fresh, big, juicy, plump, and sweet peaches? But 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).
Today, I would like to share a recipe that can use these great canned peaches in a healthy main course; Glazed Salmon with Peaches. If you love to use fresh peaches, you can just simply replace it in the recipe.
Salmon is Family Favorite
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.
Can I use Fresh Peaches?
Of course. Just simply replace the canned peaches with fresh peaches, I would recommend to use yellow peaches over white, though. Make sure the peaches aren’t too ripen. You will need a slight firmness to it.
What other fish can I use instead of salmon
Any white fish with firm flesh would be ideal; such as snapper, tilapia, sea bass, etc.
How to make Glazed Salmon with Canned Peaches
Get your beautiful salmon fillet ready. Transfer it into a greased baking pan.
Drain a can of yellow cling peach chunks in a strainer, reserving 1 tablespoon of its syrup.
In a small sauce pan, combine brown sugar, butter and the reserved syrup.
Bring the pan over medium heat, melt the brown sugar in the butter. Remove the pan from the heat.
Add the whole grain mustard, soy sauce, olive oil,
grated fresh ginger, a little salt, and some black pepper. Mix it all up to make a beautiful glaze.
Brush half the amount of glaze on the salmon.
Coat the drained peaches with the remaining glaze,
and then dump them over the salmon.
Bake in the preheated 400 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.
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.
