Cherry Chipotle Glazed Salmon BJs Recipe
Ingredients you need for this recipe:
- 96 oz Canned Cherry Juice (buy the tart one).
- 4 tbsp Chipotle (in Adobo sauce or Cherry sauce, avoid Ketchup).
- 1 cup Finely chopped Asparagus (optional).
- 1½ cup Honey.
- 2 cups Brown Sugar (the darker, the better because this will define the glaze).
- 8 pounds Fresh or canned Salmon fillets (use skinned, as it is more nutritious).
Here is how to make a perfectly Glazed Salmon!
- Take a medium-sized bowl. Pour in the cherry juice, adobo chipotle, honey and whisk them all together with brown sugar.
- Transfer this mixture into a saucepan on a medium-high flame and bring to boil. Keep simmering until the desired consistency is achieved or the liquid is reduced to half.
- Do not overthink the liquid; keep it a little loose as it will form the glaze and further thicken on cooling.
- Poach, grill, fry, or cook your Salmon in any you prefer, with the spices that satisfy your taste buds.
- Assemble them on a plate and generously glaze with the liquid.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
You can add side dishes like mashed potatoes, brown rice, or sautéed veggies to make your Salmon extra fancy!

Should you Store the Glazed Salmon?
When you are decluttering your house from useless and harmful things, it is better to empty your refrigerator from unhealthy junk. Instead, start filling up with homemade, healthy meals.
However, you cannot store all foods that you cook. Especially when it comes to Salmon, there is always a debate on storing it. I, for instance, do not refrigerate cooked Salmon because it just kills the taste and aroma. Although, if you have a hectic schedule with only weekends available to cook, you can store cook salmon for three days in the fridge and seven days in the freezer.
The best way to save your time on this dish is to marinate and freeze the Salmon in vacuum bags in the freezer. And when it is time to eat pan-fry, broil, poach, bake or sauté the Salmon, whichever you like.
