Fruity Salmon with Apricot Sauce is a healthy, simple and delicious meal, perfect for midweek. I think that fruity flavors pair so well with salmon and I think you’ll love how great this apricot glaze tastes too! I love to use salmon for this dish, but you could use halibut or another firm fish instead of salmon if you prefer.

To make the sauce, you simply bring the apricot nectar, preserves, scallion, oregano and some salt to a boil. When it reduces, add the apricots, and a few dashes of hot pepper sauce. Add some grilled salmon and there you have it! This delicious meal is ready in 30 minutes and tastes great served with steamed greens and some brown rice.
