Ingredients

  • Salmon:
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup apricot nectar
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves

Preparation

  1. Prepare grill.
  2. To prepare fish, sprinkle fillets evenly with garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes.
  3. To prepare glaze, combine nectar and next 6 ingredients (through 1/4 teaspoon pepper) in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat; set aside.
