  • Four 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh peach jam
  • 1/2 lime squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 /4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Prepare the glaze by mixing together the jam, lime juice, honey, bourbon and cayenne pepper until smooth. 
  • Heat the grill to medium and season the salmon with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Place the fish fillets on a piece of aluminum foil skin side down. Drizzle each piece of salmon with the peach glaze, reserving any extra. 
  • Place the aluminum foil containing the fish onto the heated grill and close the lid, cooking for 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches about 140°F.
  • Remove the fish from the grill and allow it to sit for about five minutes. It will continue cooking and be flaky without being overcooked.
  • Transfer to a platter and spoon the reserved glaze over the grilled salmon. 


Note:  If you prefer to make your own peach preserves, peel and chop two peaches. Simmer the peaches with a half cup of water adding more if needed until the peaches reduces. Stir in the other glaze ingredients and stir until smooth.
