Broiled Salmon with Marmalade-Dijon Glaze

Do you ever get into a food rut? I know I do. Last week I decided I was in a major one. With life spiraling around me in a beautiful circus it became too easy to eat the same meals over and over again. It was time to pull myself out of it! I quickly searched the internet before leaving work and decided to make a recipe from the Cooking Light website: Broiled Salmon with a Marmalade-Dijon Glaze. This recipe was simple, quick to put together, and very tasty. It was perhaps a little too sweet for my dad, but for those of us who like a hint of sweetness, it will be just right.

For once I followed a recipe just as it was written- minus the ginger (I hate ginger!). I made time to cook a nice meal but that doesn’t mean I felt like thinking! I went on auto-pilot.


Here is the recipe, try it out:


  • 1/2  cup  orange marmalade
  • 1  tablespoon  Dijon mustard
  • 1/2  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground ginger
  • 4  (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Cooking spray


Preheat broiler.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well. Place fish on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Brush half of marmalade mixture over fish; broil 6 minutes. Brush fish with remaining marmalade mixture; broil for 2 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

I am not lying when I say it was DELICIOUS! Try it!
