Instructions

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 400 ° F.
  2. 2
    Heat a small saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the shallot and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute.
  3. 3
    Add the fig jam, chipotle chile, and water and season with salt. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the mixture thickens slightly, 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the chives.
  4. 4
    Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil, swirling to coat. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and place flesh-side down in the pan. Cook until beginning to lightly char, 3-4 minutes.
  5. 5
    Turn the filets flesh-side up and brush with half the glaze. Place the pan in the oven and roast until the fish is just cooked through but still opaque in the middle, about 3 minutes.
  6. 6
    Lift the flesh off the skin (if desired) and transfer to a board or plate. Brush with the remaining glaze and let rest 2 minutes before serving.

step 9
Salmon is one of the best types of fish for pan roasting, with flesh that’s very tender yet hearty enough to handle the heat. Salmon also loves sauces—or a syrupy sweet-and-spicy glaze, as in this recipe. The sweet creaminess of the fig jam balances the smoky heat of the chipotle chiles for a deliciously warm flavor combination. Not many ingredients, but loaded with great taste.
