Salmon with cherry glaze

This was a gorgeous meal. Just make sure you cut the salmon into smaller pieces so it cooks evenly all the way through! The cherries are a little messy, but it is well worth the work.

  • 3 cups pitted and halved cherries
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (divided)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped thyme
  • 12 oz salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions

Arrange rack in the bottom third of the stove and preheat broiler. Pit and halve the cherries.

In a large bowl, toss together cherries, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, agave nectar and thyme. Arrange salmon skin-side down on a large foil-lined baking sheet. Scatter cherry mixture over and around salmon and broil until salmon is just cooked through and cherries are juicy and caramelized, 5 to 7 minutes.

Transfer to plates, drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice and serve.
