Like some of the recipes I plan on posting to this webpage, this broiled salmon recipe with marmalade dijon glaze is very sentimental to me. Certain recipes bring back memories, and this right here is one of those recipes. I remember still living at my parents’ house. My father was still alive and not home yet from work. He was a physician who specialized in internal medicine. He worked long hours seeing patients both in the hospital and during office hours at his own health clinic.
To give my mother a break from cooking, I decided to cook dinner for them one night. My mother didn’t cook a lot of fish since most smelled and tasted “too fishy” for her liking. I was big into looking up recipes online and found this one on myrecipes.com. Here’s the link if you’re interested, otherwise see below for my written rendition of the recipe. I also have to add that their suggestion about serving this salmon with a salad and roasted potatoes is spot on. I personally some roasted baby red potatoes sounds wonderful. Of course if you do this, I suggest you start roasting the potatoes prior to putting the salmon in to broil, since .
Anywho…as I began cooking, my mother mentioned that she didn’t think my father liked salmon, which of course made me nervous, thinking no one would be eating and enjoying my dinner but me. But whatever, I was already in the process of preparing the glaze so I kept on going. When he came home, dinner was finished and I was anxious to see how he’d like it. He sat down, took a bite and to my surprise…HE LIKED IT! In fact he really liked it and even asked what I had done to make it taste so good. Major win for me! And total keeper of a recipe ever since. This will always be one of my favorite go-to salmon recipes not only because its salmon and let’s face it…salmon is the bomb when it comes to getting those omega-3’s, but also because of the memory I’ll always associate with this recipe. I hope this salmon with marmalade dijon glaze recipe turns all you salmon-wary individuals into salmon lovers too! Go on, give it a go!
