It was through serendipity that I’ve become friends with a lovely food blogger in town. I’ve mentioned Kate from the blog Kate’s Kitchen before. Since meeting on line, I’ve been to one of her fabulous parties, gone out to dinner with her and her hilarious hubby, run into her around town, and enjoyed cooking some of her fabulous recipes. She raved about this glazed salmon, and I’d been waiting for a rare rain-free evening this spring to fire up the grill.
Hubby, Bill, thoroughly enjoyed this dish…but didn’t even sample the salsa…just more for me! Tom was off to grill dinner at one of his friend’s house, so he took a ziplock bag complete with marinade and fillet…and made sure to ask me for the recipe. He knew his gal pals would ask about it~
Salmon with Marmalade Glaze…recipe courtesy of Kate Marvel via Simple and Delicious
3-4 8 ounce salmon fillets
1/2 cup soy
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup orange marmalade
Mix soy, mustard and lemon in a ziplock bag. Add salmon and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
While salmon is marinating, prepare grill.
Remove salmon from marinade and top with marmalade. Grill over indirect heat to desired doneness. Serve with Fruit Salsa.

1 cup chopped mango
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 cup diced bell peppers (I used some red, orange and yellow)

Combine ingredients, refrigerate to allow flavors to meld. Serve at room temperature.
