Zesty Apricot Glazed Salmon

READY IN: 48mins
Recipe by Recipe Reader

This sounds great!! It is made with jalapenos, mustard, and apricot preserves. It was a Guy Fieri Foodnetwork recipe that I simplified. The glaze should be cooked then cooled, so add about 30 minutes for the cooling step.

This is a GREAT recipe --- we tried with salmon on cedar planks (BBQ) -- it was fabulous!
