Hi peeps!

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!

    I eat salmon often about once a week.
    It is good to change up the preparation

    MMMMM!!!! We love salmon; it’s definitely a treat here because I try to get ‘Wild Caught’ but it’s always more expensive. However it’s so good when we get it; I love the idea of putting a sticky balsamic glaze on it!
