Updated: Jan 23
Courtesy of Marisa Moore from Pinterest. I just had to add this to the list of recipes I'd love to cook with you. Perfect for wrapping up the summer with this light and juicy glazed salmon for us to devour! Just reading the name has my mouth watering, please tell me you have the same reaction too! Picture this: it's the tail end of sizzling nights - you open the door to me in a short skirt and tight shirt, hugging all the right places. I hand you a spicy pineapple margarita and greet you with a warm embrace. Leading you into the kitchen where I've started preparing our homecooked meal.
As you sit back and enjoy the view, I'll swiftly whip up the glaze for the salmon and gather the green beans for the side dish to compliment our main feast. Once everything is searing and baking to perfection, I come join you by your side to let you taste the glaze from my finger for just a tease of what's soon to be enveloping our taste buds. Oh what a evening of sensations and wonders to burn into our memories!

Whisk the peach jam, honey, bourbon, garlic and chipotle powder until smooth. brush the glaze upon the fish covering the top and sides.
Broil the salmon at least 6 inches from the heat element to an internal temperature of 145 degrees - about 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillets. Keep an eye out to make sure the salmon glaze doesn't burn.
Serve the peach glazed salmon with sauteed whole green beans for an elegant touch or try roasted broccoli or asparagus.
Optional: While the salmon is cooking, considering adding any extra peaches to a saucepan and cooking them down over medium heat with a little honey, bourbon, and a pinch of salt. Spoon the cooked peaches over the finished salmon or serve alongside the vegetables.
