Place the cheese on top and bake in the broiler on low, until the cheese is melted. Take the sandwich out of the broiler and add the Cherry Jalapeno Pepper Jam on top.

Baked Salmon Filets with Cherry Jalapeno Pepper Jam

4 salmon filets, about 1 inch thick glazed-salmon

½ cup grated onion

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. paprika

4 Tbs. butter (optional, can use olive oil or spray)

Salt to taste

WV Fruit and Berry Cherry Jalapeno Pepper Jam, to pour over the finished filets

Place the salmon filets in a 9 X 13 baking pan. Melt the butter in a small skillet and sauté the onion and Worcestershire sauce until the onions become transparent.

Brush the onion mixture lightly over the filets and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Heat the Cherry Jalapeno Pepper Jam, or any one of our three flavors of pepper jam, for 15 seconds in a microwave safe dish, stir and pour over the finished filets. You can use our Cherry Preserves instead, if you don’t like the heat in the Jalapeno. The sweet sauce adds so much to the taste of the salmon.

Grilled Cheese with Cherry Jalapeno Pepper Jam

Who doesn’t like a good grilled cheese sandwich? grilled-cheese

This is our favorite:

USE GOOD ITALIAN BREAD. We like our local Italian Breads.

Make a grilled cheese the way you would normally do, adding any one of our three Jalapeno Pepper Jams, or try Strawberry Jam or Cherry Preserves.  Spread one side of the bread with jam, assemble the sandwich and grill.

We love them all!
