Grilled Salmon with Curried Peach Sauce


After a particularly warm and humid midday run last week, I did something really bad.


Going into Costco at noon, sweaty and parched, is a terrible idea. I went in for 2 items – kleenex and eggs – and came out with blueberries, bananas, wild blueberry goat cheese, salsa, and a crate of peaches. (In my defense, I’ve been eyeing that goat cheese for weeks but hadn’t mustered up the courage to grab it.) Anyway, apparently I was craving fruit. And it made me realize that the last time I actually had fruit was many, many weeks ago. How is that possible? (It’s actually really easy when you aren’t supposed to eat strawberries, bananas, and apples.)

So here I am, with a carton of peaches, knowing full well that we don’t like to just sit down and eat a peach because they are juicy disasters which means they are being banished to being incorporated into meals. So far, I’ve thrown then in green monsters, topped waffles with them, and made this curried peach sauce.

And I’ve only gone through half the crate so far. (So feel free to send me peach recipes that aren’t desserts or salsa, please!)


Grilled Salmon with Curried Peach Sauce


2 fresh peaches, diced 
2 T honey
1 heaping teaspoon curry powder
salt and pepper to taste 
4 salmon steaks
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp lemon juice


Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.

Stir together the peaches, honey, and curry powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and cook until the peaches break down, and the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Season the salmon steaks with salt and pepper, garlic, lemon juice and cook on the preheated grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 10 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the steaks. Pour the peach sauce over the salmon to serve.

(Husband actually elected to go with the foil pouch route for making the salmon since last time, we overcooked the salmon on the grill. Oops.)

  1. This sounds awesome! I am having trouble with fruit these days too.. Can’t eat berries and some thin skinned fruits because of pesticides and bacteria, and if I do they need to be cooked. Curried peach sauce sounds like a perfect way to get my summer peaches in without getting sick 🙂

    How about stuffing the peaches in meat? Or, grilling them on pizza?

  2. Costco is such a biatch like that!! It is not possible to go in there and only buy what you originally had your sight on. I’m glad that it takes at least 20 minutes to get to Costco, otherwise I’d probably always be broke. On the other hand, having Costco 20 mins away, also means that Trader Joes is 20 mins away. Oh the dramas of grocery shopping! 🙂

  3. That looks yummy Leah!! You can always freeze them before they go bad – that way they will keep and are good for smoothies or mixed drinks.

  4. Oh…started a new blog on word press – chicken nugget momma…..just sort of starting out – sort of here and there stuff….no direction yet 😉
