Broiled Salmon with Honey Mustard Glaze
This spicy subtly sweet smear makes a terrific easy sauce for salmon, served with a side of steamed vegetables it’s a flavorful easy meal. Atlantic salmon with a higher fat content works best for broiling however a leaner salmon will also work with reduced broiling time.
Many ovens require only a five minute pre-heat when using the Broil Mode and remember to always broil with the oven door closed.
1 - filet of salmon with or without skin
¼ - cup Whole Grain Dijon mustard
¼ - cup honey
2 - tablespoons creamed horseradish
Combine the mustard, honey and horseradish together and chill for a few minutes to make it easier to spread without sliding off the fish.
Place the oven rack on the 2nd rack from the top and preheat the oven in the Convection Broil Mode to High or 480 degrees. If your oven has a gas broiler you will only have a Broil option with no temperature setting.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, shiny side down.
Place the salmon on the pan and spread the smear evenly over the salmon.
Broil for 6 - 8 minutes until the glaze begins to change color.
If the salmon fillet is quite thick then move the tray to a lower rack away from the intense heat in the top of the oven and leave it in the oven for another few minutes till firm to the touch in the thickest part.
Serves 4 - 6

Baked Ham with Tangerine Glaze and Roasted Carrots
Since ham is already cooked by smoking it is most often eaten cold, however heated through and brushed with a fruity glaze it makes a great centerpiece for celebration meals.
In order to heat the ham through it usually needs a fair bit of time in a slow oven and to avoid drying out the meat it is covered until the final stage when the glaze is added. However, if you bake your unsliced ham in Convection you will not need to cover the ham and the heating through time will take approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours, depending on the weight of the ham. If you are heating a sliced ham then it must remain covered in foil to avoid drying out.
1 - smoked ham, bone-in, skin on 7 - 9 lbs
1 - bunch fresh sage leaves
¾ - cup olive oil
1 - cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
2 - cups tangerine juice
2 - tangerines, sliced thin, seeds removed
2 - cups, packed light brown sugar
1 - cup water
½ - teaspoon whole cloves
2 - cinnamon sticks
1 ½ - lbs baby carrots
Preheat the oven in the Convection Mode 300 degrees.
Place the ham on a rack in a large roasting pan.
Score the ham with cuts in a diamond pattern about 2 inches apart and ½ deep.
Season generously with salt and pepper. Chop 8 of the sage leaves and mix with the olive oil to make a paste, rub all of the ham getting into the slits.
Bake for 2 hours.
Combine the butter, tangerine juice, tangerines, brown sugar, water and spices in a heavy medium saucepan and heat over medium heat.
Bring to a gentle boil and simmer until the liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze, 30 - 40 minutes.
Brush the glaze over the ham when it has completed its initial heating phase. Add the baby carrots and another 8 chopped sage leaves and continue baking for another 40 - 50 minutes until the carrots are tender and the internal temperature of the ham is 150 degrees.
