Cranberry Chipotle Glazed Baked Salmon

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

Welcome to #CranberryWeek! All week long I will be sharing my newest recipes for using that delicious autumn berry along with a group of blogging friends. I am sure we will have it  covered from A-Z!

For my  recipe of  the day, I am sharing cranberry chipotle glazed baked salmon. Baking salmon is  one  of my favorite  things since I can get  it put together in just a few minutes. This one  is similar, albeit different, from another recipe I have shared  for Jalapeno  Glazed Baked Salmon (recipe link past the recipe printout) although that  one doesn’t use cranberries but jalapeno  jelly instead.

I usually make my own jalapeno  jelly although I don’t think I have posted that yet. I’ll try to get it  up when  I have time.

Cranberry  sauce is easy to  make too- I call  for using jellied in this one but if you don’t mind the chunkiness of  whole berry you can  use that type as well. I will go either way,  using  whatever I  have around. And you can make you  own sauce year  round if you stash some bags of cranberries in the  freezer.

The fish is easy to  bake- don’t bother trying to remove the skin before baking. You  will  find  it  separates nicely when the fish is  done- you might have to loosen it  around the  edge but it’s no problem. And as far as  bones go, I don’t usually find them in salmon.

Baking the lemon with the fish softens them up  and makes  it very  easy to  squeeze out nice warm juice  over your seafood.

I will  often serve fish  simply with wild rice and a tossed salad. Garlic bread is also  nice too. However you  plan yours out,  I hope you enjoy,  and be  sure to stop back by each day this week. In fact, the blog will be very busy with recipes the next couple of weeks as we gear up for Thanksgiving here at Palatable. It’s the most wonderfully hungry time of the year between now and New Year’s Day!

Cya’ tomorrow (I gotta’ get back  to  watching  that Green Bay Packers vs. New England Patriots game…)
