  • Mix apricot preserves with mustard.

  • Place salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Brush 1/2 of the apricot mixture over top.

  • Bake on the top rack of the preheated oven for 16 minutes. Pull from the oven and brush with remaining apricot mixture. Cook until salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 2 more minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Buy fresh salmon from the meat counter at your grocery store for best results.

If you're looking to make this meal even healthier, use sugar-free apricot preserves. You can use apricot fruit spread in place of preserves, if desired.
