2/3
cup teriyaki marinade and sauce
1/4
cup apricot preserves
1/4
cup water
2
tablespoons sesame or canola oil
4
teaspoons grated gingerroot
2
teaspoons Dijon mustard
4
medium cloves garlic, finely chopped (2 1/2 teaspoons)
3
lb salmon fillets
2
medium green onions, thinly sliced (2 tablespoons)
1
tablespoon sesame seed, toasted*
  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray foil with cooking spray.
  2. In 2-quart saucepan, stir together teriyaki sauce, preserves, water, oil, gingerroot, mustard and garlic. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
  3. Rinse salmon fillets; pat dry with paper towels. Place salmon, skin sides down, in pan. Spoon 1/2 cup sauce mixture over salmon.
  4. Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pan after 10 minutes, until salmon flakes easily with fork.
  5. Meanwhile, heat remaining sauce mixture to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced to about 1/2 cup.
  6. Carefully transfer salmon to serving platter. Drizzle with thickened sauce mixture. Sprinkle with onions and sesame seed.

*To toast sesame seed, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
Continue the Asian theme with two salads: one of melon chunks drizzled with a citrus dressing, the other a pasta salad tossed with Thai peanut dressing.
Tip
Place the thickest fillets on the outside edges of pan.
