Ingredients

FOR THE MAGICAL BUTTER SAUCE
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons fruit preserves (like apricot, mango-jalapeno, blackberry, etc.)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced herbs (like parsley, cilantro, basil, chives)
FOR THE FISH
  • 1 piece skinless salmon fillet, about 5-6 inches long
  • salt and pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for cooking

Preparation

  1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Roll the salmon. Use kitchen twine to tie the salmon in 4 places, evenly spaced. Make sure you tie it tight! Cut between the twine to make 4 evenly sized pieces, about 1 1/4″ thick.
  2. Heat a large frying pan with some vegetable oil over high heat. When hot, add the salmon steaks. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn the salmon over. Cook an additional 1 minute. Turn heat to medium-low, then cover pan loosely with tin foil. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through. Remove salmon to clean plate.
  3. To the same pan on medium-low heat, add the Magical Butter ingredients. Cook until bubbly and butter is melted, about 30 seconds. Pour on top of the salmon.
