Apricot & Country Mustard Salmon

Kim Biegacki


Salmon is my most favorite fish that I love, love, love. It is beautiful and very filling, not to mention easy to cook up and have ready for a meal in a short time. This was the first time I have prepared salmon with fruit flavors and it was delicious. The combination of apricot & mustard pairs well and gives a delicate flavor to the fish. Of course, I couldn't resist adding just a little balsamic glaze, which I love too.

This is a recipe from my Ninja cookbook but can be made in the oven or on the grill. Either way would be wonderful.
