One of the most common questions I receive from viewers: “How do I make a glaze that is very glossy, but uses no cornstarch?”
This prompted me to create fast, easy, and very shiny glazes from fruit preserves. Peach Glazed Salmon is just the beginning, Chefs. You’ll love the Blackberry/Balsamic Glaze.
Choose good quality all fruit preserves or jams. As with all recipes, great ingredients are the first step to plating a masterpiece.
- 1 tsp Grapeseed oil
- 2 tsp Shallots, finely minced
- 1/2 cup Orange Marmalade
- 1/2 cup Peach Preserves
- 2 tsp. Red Wine vinegar
2 large Navel Orange
2-6 oz Salmon filets, skinless
Warm grapeseed oil in a small saucepan. Saute shallots over low heat, approximately four minutes stirring occasionally, until very soft and translucent.
Add Orange Marmalade, and Peach Preserves. Stir until smooth and glossy. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar. Set aside.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Slice orange into 1/4″ slices. Lay on grill, creating a “bed” for the salmon filets. Pat filets dry and brush lightly with glaze.
Lay slices over grill side by side, making a bed for each salmon filets. Place fillets on orange slices and grill 15 minutes, or to your desired temperature.
Place peach halves on grill, cut side down, and grill 3-4 minutes.
Serve filets with peach halves and extra glaze.
Discard orange slices.
The big buzz around salmon is the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These essential fats carry with them many benefits. But there is another nutrient that offers the greatest anti-aging benefits: Dimethylethanolamine (DMAE).
This nutrient stabilizes the structure of our skin. It binds the water we drink to our tissue and keeps everything moist and supple. The arteries and veins must be flexible in order to carry blood efficiently. As we age, the tissue in every part of our body thins and loses structure. Foods like cold-water fish, Ahi Flower, Acai Berries and Black currants — just to name a few — encourages Collagen and elastin production. This slows the appearance, as well as the effects of aging, better than any skin cream could. Balanced nutrition and lifestyle are your best tools in gaining entry into the ‘Super Agers Club.”
