Glazed Salmon with Apricot, Pineapple and Orange

Tuesday, August 24, 2021
This is a fruity super easy style blend of flavors to make Glazed Salmon with Apricot,Pineapple,and Orange sweet topping.

The glaze has a wonderful combination of preserves and fresh orange zest to give a shiny pretty topping when served.

During the summer this can be grilled, or all year long try it baked, pan-fried and even air-fried.

We really love to wrap this is oil sprayed foil and throw it on the grill, the flavors are just perfect in every bite.

Salmon baked with a sticky glaze is always a delicious treat for this style of seafood.

This meaty fish stands up well with an aromatic smell and the flavors meld wonderfully together with this glaze.

The seafood is one of those healthy oily fish that can be sweet or savory and always a delicious bite.

Cooking salmon with a sticky glaze is always a good idea. Salmon is meaty enough to stand up to sweet, aromatic flavors and the end result will always be totally delicious.


  • 4 - Salmon fillets around 2 pounds
  • 3/4  cup apricot-pineapple preserves
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoon fresh orange zest
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or you can use orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or granulated garlic powder
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of ground ginger and cinnamon is optional


  1. Combine all the glaze ingredients and bring to a simmer in a small saucepan. 
  2. Allow cooking for a few minutes until the glaze has thickened and coats the back of a spoon easily. 
  3. Adjust seasoning (add more soy or orange juice if necessary) and allow to cool slightly. 
  4. Line a baking tray with foil and grease with a little oil/cooking spray. 
  5. Place the salmon fillets on the tray, skin-side down. 
  6. Pour over the glaze and place in the oven.
  7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes ( depending on the thickness of the salmon), spooning the glaze over the salmon every 2-3 minutes,  or until the salmon is glossy and sticky. 
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving with sides of your choice.
