    Excellent and looked magazine worthy. Broiled it for 8 minutes before glazing.

    This really is a terrific recipe! I served for guests along with the Southwestern Confetti Salad (CL) and some roasted red potatoes. What a hit! Instead of grilling, I glazed the salmon fillets before and after baking them for 6 minutes at 400 F. Worked perfectly!

    Neither my husband nor I are big salmon fans, but the glaze from this recipe is fantastic which enables us to enjoy the health benefits of salmon without feeling as though we are being force fed. The 3 stars are for the salmon. The glaze receives 5!

    Excellent! Easy way to jazz up the fillets with on-hand ingredients. I will probably make a little more glaze next time and serve on the side.

    This was excellent! I'm not a fish person and I even liked it. I added a bit of crushed red pepper to the fish before cooking a 1t of light soy sauce to the marinade. Would definitely cook for guests!

    I'm making this tonight for the second time. My partner thinks I'm the best cook on the earth. But only thanks to Cooking Light and all of your cookbooks that I have. No other cookbooks that I have are as foolproof as you are!

    Wow is this good. The glaze goes great on pan seared pork chops as well. Very easy recipe.

    Supereasy, great results. Made glaze to recipe. Rather than grilling the fish on a rainy night, cooked stovetop, glazed, then slid under the broiler. Served with the recommended orzo-spinach pilaf. Wine shop recommended a Tuscan Vermentino & and it paired well with the fish.

    This is a delicious and easy meal, perfect for entertaining because you can make the sauce ahead of time. We put the fillets on a grilling rack and then cooked it on our Traeger BBQ at 350 degrees for 20 minutes - basting the sauce on at the last 2 minutes. No need to flip the fish that way. It came out perfectly. I did double the sauce thinking we'd want more for the table but we had plenty, so no need to do that again. Served with roasted asparagus and potatoes au gratin.

    This has quickly become one of our favorite salmon recipes. We cooked it inside, due to poor weather, insides according to the CL recipe for Apple and Horseradish-Glazed Salmon.

    Love this recipe. If I can't grill I'll first sear the top of the salmon in a oven-safe pan over med-high heat for 3-4 min. Then I flip the salmon in the pan, add the glaze and finish it under the broiler for another 3-4 min. Comes out perfectly every time. Only 4 stars b/c I rarely have apricot nectar & apricot preserves on-hand, if I want to make this recipe I have to go & get these ingredients especially for this dish.
