800g (1,7lbs) salmon(trimmed into 4 skin-on fillets)
For the apricot glaze
¾cup (180ml) apricot jam/preserves
1-2tbsp (15-30ml) soy sauce
2tbsp (30ml) lemon juice
pinch of chilli flakes/red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 220ºC/430ºF.
Combine all the glaze ingredients and bring to a simmer in a small saucepan. Allow to cook for a few minutes until the glaze has thickened and coats the back of a spoon easily. Adjust seasoning (add more soy or lemon juice if necessary) and allow to cool slightly.
Line a baking tray with foil and grease with a little oil/cooking spray. Place the salmon fillets on the tray, skin-side down. Pour over the glaze and place in the oven.
Allow to bake for 7-10 minutes, spooning the glaze over the salmon every 2-3 minutes, until the salmon is cooked to your preference, and is glossy and sticky.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving with sides of your choice.
