Apple Spiced Salmon

Apple Spiced Salmon

I love this Apple Spiced Salmon recipe because of its unique flavor and ease of preparation.


4 (6-ounce) wild salmon fillets, skin and pin bones removed
salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup apple butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon allspice
1 shallot, diced (about ¼ cup)
3 tablespoons slivered almonds


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

In a small bowl, whisk the apple butter, lemon juice and allspice until smooth.

Place the salmon fillets skinned side down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle both sides of each fillet with salt and pepper. Brush the apple butter mixture over the fillets and pour remaining glaze over them. Sprinkle with the shallots and almonds. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Makes 4 servings

Note: Removing skin from a salmon fillet doesn’t have to be a chore, here’s an easy tip for removing the skin without any hassle.

If you are baking the salmon, place a sheet of parchment on a shallow baking pan. Do not use any oil or cooking spray. Season and bake according to taste. This should be about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove salmon from the oven. Slide the spatula between the skin and the salmon fillet. The salmon will easily lift off the parchment and you can move it to the serving plate. (The skin will stick to the parchment.)
