I was looking for new salmon recipes when I stumbled upon this unique combination. I would never have thought that strawberries would be taste good on salmon. Nevertheless, I was curious so I tried this baked strawberry salmon.
The original recipe calls for strawberry preserves, but I was unable to find it so I decided to use strawberry jam instead. I also decided to use the strawberry jam with the chunks of whole strawberry. I was very happy with the outcome. Marinating the fish in lemon juice and soy sauce made the dish tastier and the whole strawberries gave it a nice flavor and texture. Even my husband who does not like sweets raved about this dish.
The salmon fillets were first marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and pepper. Then it is topped with strawberry jam and then baked until perfectly cooked. The result is a simple but delicious salmon dish that I will be making again. Enjoy!
