Since we love to grill outside and our evenings are still quite mild, I decided to grill a beautiful, thick piece of salmon the other night and I made a sweet and savory apricot ginger glaze using dried apricots.  The dried apricots gave the delicate sauce a lovely sweetness that paired well with the salmon.

I sofented the apricots first in hot water and sliced them into strips.  Then, I cooked the apricots in a little white wine, orange juice, low-sugar apricot preserves and added a touch of tarragon and ginger for a little added zest to the glaze.

The apricot ginger glaze was very flavorful and perfect on the salmon.  For this low-carb dinner, I served the salmon on a bed of sautéed spinach and drizzled the apricot glaze over the top.
