Spicy Plum Salmon (Healthy Recipe)

Posted on

I created this sweet and spicy salmon after being challenged to use healthier ingredients. The fresh plum sauce really complements the smoky grilled fish..


Ingredients :

  • 5 medium plums, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


Directions :

  1. Coarsely chop 2 plums; place in a small saucepan. Add water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until plums are softened and liquid is almost evaporated. Cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor; add ketchup, chipotle, sugar and oil. Process until pureed. Reserve 3/4 cup sauce for serving.
  2. Sprinkle salmon with salt; place on a greased grill rack, skin side up. Grill, covered, over medium heat until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Brush with remaining sauce during last 3 minutes. Slice remaining plums. Serve salmon with plum slices and reserved sauce.
