Sweet and spicy glazed salmon with greens

Ryan Szulc

Chatelaine Triple Tested


  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets, each about 180 g and 1 inch thick

  • 1/4 cup red-pepper jelly

  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 to 2 tsp hot chili-garlic sauce

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

  • 1 large bunch Chinese broccoli, about 600g, sliced in half lengthwise

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Position an oven rack in top third of oven. Preheat broiler to 500F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Lightly spray with oil. Place salmon skin-side down on foil.

  • Stir red-pepper jelly with Dijon and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl until combined. Set aside 2 tbsp of sauce. Spread remaining mixture (about 1 tbsp each) over fillets.

  • Broil in top third of oven until a knife tip inserted in centre of fish and held for 10 sec comes out warm, about 8 to 11 min.

  • Heat a large frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then gai lan. Add 1/4 cup water. Sprinkle with salt and season with fresh pepper. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until tender-crisp, about 3 to 5 min. Remove from heat. As soon as salmon is removed from oven, brush it with remaining red-pepper-jelly mixture. Place salmon on plates with gai lan. Serve with rice.
