Salmon is delicious by itself but it is extra special if you make a tasty glaze for it. The following glaze contains apple juice, onion, balsamic vinegar, and liquid smoke for a sweet, sour, smoky flavor which is amazing with the fish. You need to make the glaze and let it cool a little before brushing it on.

If you want to grill the salmon, that is fine too and you just need to cook it over a moderately hot grill until the fish is light pink and can flake. Roasting is also a good cooking method for salmon and the glaze stops it from drying out in the dry heat of your oven. Salmon is cooked when it is light pink all over and when the center is hot and slightly flaky. Salmon keeps cooking for a minute or two after you remove it from the heat so do not overcook it.

There are various glaze recipes for salmon. Some feature whisky or bourbon and others feature different kinds of fruit or fruit juice. This one is nicely balanced though and the sweetness of the apple, sourness of the onion and unique flavor of the vinegar work well together. Also, the smoky flavor from the liquid smoke will give your salmon a delicious taste and you can get that “fresh off the grill” flavor by using liquid smoke, whether or not you happen to have a charcoal grill.

You can choose your own side dish for this tasty glazed salmon filet recipe but green beans are lovely with this particular fish because their mild flavor takes a back seat to the slightly stronger, richer salmon flavor. Potato goes well too, and that might be potato salad, a baked potato or even fries. The apple glaze is marvelous with the fish because it complements the salmon and brings out its unique taste at the same time. Whether you are cooking for friends or just the family as usual, you will find that this is a totally satisfying roasted salmon recipe. Better still, it is easy to make!
