Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 2 servings


  • 2 salmon fillets, about 5-8 ounces per piece
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or additional to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, or additional to taste
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking dish with foil and coat with cooking spray.
  • Season both sides of the salmon with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the salmon in the baking dish.
  • In a small non-stick sauce pan over low heat saute the garlic and the olive oil about 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the vinegar, honey and dijon to the pan and turn up to medium. Stir well and continue to stir occasionally. Allow the sauce to cook for 3-5 minutes or until it turns into a thick glaze. Season with the rest of the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Brush the top of the salmon with the sauce.
  • Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the over and brush the sauce on the salmon again.
  • Return the salmon to the oven for another 5-10 minutes or until it starts to flake. The thicker your piece of salmon the longer the cooking time.
  • Serve immediately.
