Looking for a new way to prepare salmon?
In this recipe from the U.S. Apple Association, a bit of apple jelly and balsamic vinegar add fresh flavors. Serve with brown rice pilaf or another whole grain and green beans or broccoli.
Prep Time: 25 minutes. Baking Time: 8 to 12 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.
2. Lightly sprinkle salmon with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place each fillet near the center on one side of each heart.
3. Heat apple jelly over low heat or in a microwave oven just until melted. Remove from heat; stir in balsamic vinegar. Spoon mixture evenly over fillets. Toss together apples and leek. Place mixture evenly on top of fillets.
4. Fold opposite side of each heart up and over the fish and apple mixture. Starting at top of heart, fold edges to seal open sides by making small tight folds. Twist tip of hearts to close packets. Place packets on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes until fish flakes easily. (Carefully open packets to check doneness.)
5. To serve, cut packets open by slashing a large X on the top of each, then fold back paper. Transfer packets to dinner plates and serve with rice. Or, if desired, remove fish with apples from packets and place on top of rice; spoon over juices. Season to taste with additional salt and the pepper.
