Dijon-apricot glazed salmon in 15 minutes flat

Wild Alaskan king salmon is my guilty pleasure. I realize most people reserve that kind of statement for something chocolaty or decadent in the dessert category, but I’m being completely honest when I say I could easily spend $100 a week on fish if someone let me.

Nothing beats the buttery flakiness of a good piece of salmon, and the best part is that it’s incredibly good for you! I’m always looking for new and easy ways to serve it up, and this apricot and Dijon glaze couldn’t be easier or more delicious. In just 15 minutes, this sticky, finger licking-good dinner is on the table.
