Grilled Salmon with Cherry Thyme Glaze

Everyone needs a good Grilled Salmon recipe in their repertoire and here you have it! Grilled Salmon with a cherry thyme glaze is an easy way to get your superfoods in a delicious way, with the added bonus of the cherry thyme glaze equally pairing well with duck and pork.




  • 4 wild caught salmon filets
  • Dash of sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


Cherry Thyme Glaze

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 (18 oz) jar cherry preserves
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 large bunch thyme



Melt butter in a saucepan and sauté the shallots until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add preserves and red wine and bring to a low boil to allow the sauce to reduce, let simmer for about 30 minutes until it has reduced in size by half. While making the sauce, start your grill.


Prepare your grill for direct heat, 350 degrees. Use a cast iron pan or griddle for the fish so it doesn’t stick to the grates. Butter the grill pan and add the filets. Cook until the internal temp has reached 145 internal degrees with an internal read thermometer- this should take no longer than 15 minutes minutes (20 minutes max), varying by the thickness of the salmon.


Generously spoon the cherry glaze over the salmon filets and garnish with additional thyme. Serve immediately.
