Passion Fruit, Jalapeno & Lemongrass Salmon Glaze — Round #1

Terrapin-salmon1 There was a debate going on in my head this morning on whether I should post this recipe or wait until I had tweaked it a little.  I finally decided that I'd go ahead and post it and then post an update at a later date with my changes. The recipe, as it is, has a very nice Asian flavor profile, but it's very, very sweet.  I liked the flavor along, but I think it needs a little acid to brighten the flavor up a little.  I'm thinking a squeeze of lime juice or better yet a tablespoon or two of Yuzu juice.

For those who want to give it a try as it is, or tweak it yourself, here’s the super simple recipe.

This is the first take on a recipe. It probably needs a little acid like lime juice or yuzu juice to brighten up. I'll be experimenting with it in the future.

  • ¼ cup Terrapin Ridge Farms Passion Fruit Jalapeno Jelly
  • 1 teaspoon lemongrass paste
  • 1 tablespoon water

  1. In a small sauce pan, over low heat melt the jelly.
  2. Add the lemongrass paste and water
  3. Using a food processor or immersion blender process until smooth.
  4. If you want to avoid the bits of lemongrass an jalapeno strain the mixture through a fine mesh and return to heat.
  5. Heat until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and brush or pour over salmon.
