Salmon with Magical Butter Sauce

“When I buy salmon fillet, I try to get the most even piece – meaning, even in thickness. But, it’s not always possible. Even when thickness is just a little different, it can cause parts of the salmon to overcook.” Jaden


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


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.

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.

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.
