As we approach the summer months when we would all rather be doing things outside and having fun, we all need easier recipes, even for #SundaySupper, so this week we are featuring recipes made with 5 Ingredients or Less. A sweet and savory sticky glaze perfectly coats and balances the richness of the fish in my Five-Ingredient Strawberry Red Wine Glazed Salmon.
Five-Ingredient Strawberry Red Wine Glazed Salmon
I have been part of Sunday Supper for almost two years now, and it’s funny, but Sunday is usually not our day for a big or fancy family meal. Honestly, I usually plan my more involved or fancier or more complicated meals for Friday or Saturday. By Sunday night I may be tired from a busy, full weekend, or just in the middle of a million things to get ready for the upcoming week, or perhaps even traveling back from a weekend visiting out-of-state family. So for us, Sunday Supper is often something I tossed in the crockpot or can whip up quickly, or sometimes it’s even just takeout. Or maybe we had a big breakfast or lunch, so we are just picking on something small or finishing up some leftovers. That doesn’t mean that we don’t sit down as a family to have our Sunday meal together. It just may not be a roast or chicken or lasagna or what you may consider a typical Sunday meal.
So while this week’s collection of recipes that require five ingredients or less may give you lots of great ideas for busy weeknights, for me, I think they’ll be perfect to add to my Sunday Supper repertoire, especially as summer approaches, and we’d rather spend our Sundays at the beach or park or even just playing in the backyard.
It’s funny how this recipe came about. I kind of had the idea for this recipe in my head, and was planning to make it as a seafood dish on a Friday during Lent. I had the general idea, then searched Pinterest for a little more inspiration and technique. Then early in the week, I saw this five ingredient Sunday Supper theme, and made few tweaks to make sure I kept it within the ingredient limit, and then, honestly, kinda hoped it would work out. Especially since I was trying to quickly grab some photos before my hungry guys demanded their dinner.
Guess what – it totally worked!
I am not a huge salmon fan, and really only like it with a super flavorful, sticky glaze, like my Maple Sesame Glazed Salmon. That is my favorite salmon recipe ever, and this one came pretty dang close. The combination of juicy strawberries and orange marmalade was balanced by the red wine (I used Gallo Family Hearty Burgundy, but any dry, fruity red wine will do), which kept it from being too sweet. The glaze clung to the fish and the acid from the citrus and wine cut through the richness of the salmon. Add two more ingredients – brown rice and some broccoli or sugar snap peas or asparagus and you have a healthy, complete meal.

What is your favorite recipe made with five ingredients or less?
- 1-1½ lb salmon filet
- salt & pepper
- ½ cup hearty red wine (I used Gallo Family Hearty Burgundy)
- ¼ cup orange marmalade
- 1 tsp olive oil
- ¼ cup minced onion
- ½ cup quartered strawberries
- Season salmon with salt and pepper and place in a plastic storage bag or flesh side down in a shallow pan.
- Whisk together the wine and marmalade and pour about ¼ cup of the mixture over the salmon. Set aside the remainder, and marinate the salmon for 15-30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Preheat your broiler, place salmon on broiler pan, and season with salt and pepper.
- Broil salmon for 10-12 minutes, or until nearly cooked through.
- While salmon is in the broiler, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 3 minutes, to soften the onion.
- Reduce heat to low, add the red wine and marmalade mixture and reduce slightly.
- When the salmon has been removed from the broiler, add the strawberries and salmon to the pan. Cook salmon for another five minutes or so, basting the sauce over the salmon until sauce has thickened, and salmon is glazed and cooked through to desired doneness.
