Rhubarb-Strawberry Delight

Lately to keep sane during these cloudy wintry Wisconsin days I’ve found myself spending more time in my small kitchen trying out new recipes. I didn’t realize how versatile Rhubarb Strawberry Fruit Spread could be.

I was in the mood first of all to try out the Rhubarb Strawberry Glazed Salmon recipe in the Tastefully Simple 30-Meal Kit and the Fix-It-Fast 10-Meal Kit.  Besides, I had a craving for salmon. It didn’t hurt that a friend who also loves salmon happened to be visiting at the farm that afternoon. The more testers of this recipe, the merrier!

I’ve had salmon with cranberry in salad at a local restaurant but wasn’t quite sure how it would pair with rhubarb and strawberry together in the form of a fruit spread sitting on top of a salmon fillet.

So, after I took the fruit spread glazed salmon fillets out of the oven, I really hoped they tasted as wonderful as they made the kitchen and dining area smell. This smell really made the salmon-loving friend eager to try a serving, and he didn’t want to go anywhere until he was served.

I was delightfully surprised. As was my friend who not only loves to fish but loves to eat a lot of it.  He said this recipe brought out the salmon flavor in a different way. A “good different” as he put it. He commented further that while rhubarb-strawberry wouldn’t work well with other types of fish, it’s a perfect match for salmon. He thought this recipe was a nice change from the way the salmon he has eaten is prepared.
