Miso Glazed Salmon with Peach Jam

Initially, I wanted to cook salmon with orange but realized that I didn't have any oranges left! Then I remembered I have bookmarked  a meat recipe using jam from Phong Hong's blog but have yet to try her  Pineapple and Mango Jam Roasted Belly.  Aha....... my hubby just bought 2 bottles of peach jam and why not?????  If Phong Hong can use jam for roasted belly so successfully, why not I try it on salmon?  Well, I am glad that I gave this recipe a try.  

Using miso and peach jam gives the salmon a very flavorful sweet caramelized taste.  Besides,  it is very appetizing too.  The sweet-savory miso peach glaze on the salmon is so delicious that my children practically licked every drop of the sauce off the plate! And, to tell you the truth, this is my first time using miso for salmon and it is SO EASY to prepare too!!!  

Ingredients :
- 2 salmon fillets (marinated with miso mixture for 20 minutes)
- 1/2 tbsp butter
Marinate : (to taste)
- 1 tbsp miso
- 1 tsp ginger juice
Sauce Mixture: (to taste)
- 2 tbsp peach jam (you can use any fruits jam)
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (I used acv as I didn't have any lemon on that day)
- a dash of sugar

Seasoning : (to taste)
- soy sauce/liquid aminos

Method :
1)  Heat butter in a pan (I used happy call pan).  Arrange salmon fillets and pan fry until both sides are slightly brown.
2)  Add seasoning on both sides of the fillets.  (I used liquid aminos).
3)  Lower the heat to the minimum.  Spread the combined sauce on both sides of the fillets.  Make sure to turn off the heat if the pan is overheated as the sauce tends to burn quite easily.
4)  Lightly pan fry (with minimum heat or with the heat off) the fillets on both sides.
5)  Dish up and serve.  
Do add extra sauce and you will thank me for that!

Hope you like this simple and appetizing dish :)

Method :

1) Blend peaches in the blender.
2) Transfer the puree to a medium sized pot.
3) Add sugar and grated lemon peel.

Homemade Roselle Jam


Roselle is known as Hibiscus Sabdariffa and is a species of Hibiscus.  It is known as the rosella or rosella fruit in Australia. It is asam belanda in Malaysia. In Chinese it is 洛神花 (Luo Shen Hua) . 


Roselle is becoming increasingly popular as a health drink as it has 
high content of Vitamin C and is said to contain 3 times more Vitamin C than blackcurrant and 9 times more than citrus fruit. It is also rich in anti-oxidant properties (anthocyanins).

Fresh roselle has been found to contain vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and vitamin B2 Complex, Vitamin A, Niacin and Calcium. 

Known benefits of drinking roselle juice:


- decreases inflammation of kidney and urinary tract. 

- good for arteriosclerosis and reduce blood  
hypertension. 

- normalize blood pressure.

- stimulate internal peristalsis.

- relief cough and fever.


- for soft and smooth skin.

We usually make roselle juice by boiling the calyces in water for 8 to 10 minutes (or until the water turns red), then add sugar. It is often served chilled.  However this time, I decided to make roselle jam as my sister had given me a bag of homegrown roselle; 100% organic! 


Ingredients :

- 3 big bowls of fresh roselle (separate the red fleshy calyx from the central seedpod, washed)
- 3 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick 
- few pandan (screwpine) leaves
- 1 cup of water 

Method :
1)  Put fresh roselle and water into a blender and blend it.

2)  Then, transfer to a medium sized pot.


3)  Add sugar and cinnamon stick.

4)  Cook at medium low heat.  Stir occasionally.

5)  Add pandan leaves when half way through.

6)  Keep stirring until it starts to thicken.  Remove pandan leaves.

7)  Let it cool before transfer to an airtight container.  Refrigerate.  


Enjoy your healthy Homemade Roselle Jam with bread or cream crackers.  I also mix 1 or 2 spoons into my fresh lemon drinks!  Very refreshing.... :)
