Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups apricot nectar

  • cup chopped dried apricots

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 (3/4 pound) salmon filet without skin

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven's broiler, and grease a broiling pan.

  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the apricot nectar, dried apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced by about half. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Remove 1/4 cup of the glaze for basting, and set the remaining aside.

  3. Place the salmon filet on the greased broiling pan, and brush with glaze. Broil 3 inches from the heat for 8 to 12 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Gently turn over once during cooking, and baste frequently during the last 4 minutes. Serve with remaining glaze.
