Need to rethink your salmon? Try my scrumptious Balsamic Glazed Salmon recipe!
I cook salmon for the Hubs and I usually every other week because it’s healthy, delicious and is one of those dishes we both enjoy. I’ve got to be honest though, sometimes I wear out my basic recipe and need to shake it up! I cook so many unique things for the blog, but even I fall into a cooking rut sometimes.
So the other day I decided to get creative and try glazing my salmon with a homemade sweet balsamic glaze. The result was my Balsamic Glazed Salmon recipe! It’s terrifically tasty and I just had to share.
To make the salmon I simmered the rich balsamic glaze in a small sauce pan before I put the salmon in the oven. There also a touch of honey, mustard and garlic in it.
Pro tip: I love this pan for making pan sauces like this!
One the sauce reduced I brushed it on my salmon fillets. I let it bake until the salmon just started to flake.
I prefer my salmon slightly overdone than overdone!
The result just takes basic salmon up another level. It rich, savory and delicious. And although it’s a little more complicated than just throwing it in the oven, the effort pays off with such a pretty dish. Serve this with fresh roasted Garlic Brussel Sprouts, Rosemary Lemon Asparagus or even 6 Ingredient Healthier Twice Baked Potatoes. It’s also great as a salad topper.
My little experiment was a big success and this is something I’ll be adding to my dinner rotation. Enjoy!
