I was inspired by the locavore in me since the cherries were in season and I wanted to make something other than pie. If you are feeding hearty eaters, you could increase the fillets to 6; however the glaze would not need to be increased. This can be served with brown rice and a steamed veggie medley...in season of course ; ) or if you want an 'improvalicious' idea, see the footnotes.

Directions

  1. Place cherries, butter, red wine vinegar, and honey in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until cherries are softened and the mixture has reduced, about 10 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, whisk the cornstarch and cold water together in a small bowl, and stir into the cherry mixture. Bring back to a simmer, stirring constantly until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove sauce from heat.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Sprinkle salmon with salt and black pepper, and place them skin sides down on a broiling pan.
  3. Broil the salmon for 30 seconds, then remove from broiler and spoon the cherry glaze generously over the fillets. Place back under broiler, and broil until salmon is opaque and the glaze has baked onto the fish, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove salmon and reglaze with cherry sauce once or twice more during cooking. For slightly rare salmon that's still barely pink in the middle, check after about 5 minutes. Let salmon stand 1 minute before serving with extra cherry sauce.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Used fresh Bing cherries and grilled the salmon- turned out great! The kids weren't sure at first (cherries on salmon, mom??) but they really liked it and so did the adults. Good, different and savory use for cherries. Would be good on chicken or pork as well.

Made this last night for friends. It was great! Fresh and summery, we really enjoyed it! A real different taste for salmon.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious and easy to make. Even my toddler liked it which is saying a lot since she typically won’t touch fish. The adults loved it too.
