Recipe: Roasted Alaskan Salmon with Cherries
Serves: 4
  • ¾ pound (about 3 cups) cherries, pitted and halved
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (4-6 oz.) wild Alaskan salmon fillets
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together cherries, lemon juice, honey and thyme. Arrange salmon skin-side down on a large parchment or foil-lined baking sheet, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Scatter cherry mixture over and around salmon and bake 12-15 minutes. Switch oven to broil and cook an additional 3 minutes until salmon is just cooked through and cherries are juicy and caramelized, (you want the thickest part of the fish to reach an internal temperature of 131 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer). Remove the salmon from the oven and allow to rest, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
