Toasted sesame seeds, sweet apricot preserves, and fresh gingerroot add depth to a classic salmon dish.
Updated Jan 28, 2010

Ingredients

  • 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*

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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 2
    Place the thickest fillets on the outside edges of pan.
