With Valentine’s Day around the corner you might be thinking about your heart, as well as, the people you love. February is easily one of my favorite months

I think food is my love language. No surprises there. There’s something special about being to share good food with the people I care most about. If there was an equally important match  it would be my love for easy and delicious eats. This recipe satisfies both.

Though it looks elegant, this peach glazed salmon recipe is easy to make and takes just a few minutes to come together. Start with the best fresh salmon you can find. Make sure it’s sliced into even fillets, so that it broils evenly. You can always ask the person at your seafood counter to do this for you.

How to Make Peach Glazed Salmon - Ingredients

Use my homemade peach jam or any good quality peach jam to make the peach glaze. Just be sure to choose one that’s low in added sugars and that has no preservatives. You can also cook down fresh or frozen peaches with honey and puree it for the glaze. The recipe gets the tiniest hint of smoky heat from ground chipotle pepper that plays so well with the sweet peaches and honey.

Bourbon Peach Glazed Salmon PIN

Serve this salmon with roasted broccoli or asparagus spears or whole green beans for an elegant touch – anything green will do. And let a little of that peach sauce bathe the green beans – you won’t regret it. And I have this down for 2 servings but you will likely have enough leftovers to flake over a salad the nnext day if you’re anything like me.

Though I’m sharing this recipe as a date night dinner idea, it’s part of the Black History Month Virtual Potluck – featuring top food bloggers around the country. Follow #BHMPotluck all month and scroll down for links to a few tasty dessert recipes from the group!

    Excellent. While the salmon was cooking I also broiled asparagus in olive oil salt, pepper and garlic for 7 minutes. It was a big hit with my wife.
