Balsamic Glazed Salmon


This glazed salmon recipe is big on flavor and easy to prepare. Fish lovers will rejoice in the combination of sweetness, spice, and the right amount of acidity to balance this meal out.


Four 6 oz salmon filets
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
3 Tbsp orange juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
Kosher salt
black pepper
grapeseed or canola oil


In a small saucepan over medium heat add the honey, vinegar, orange juice, and Dijon. Stir it well and bring to a simmer (do not boil). Reduce the liquid until it becomes thick and syrupy about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the garlic, parsley and pepper flakes then allow the mixture to cool.

While the sauce cools, preheat the oven to 400F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Brush the skin side of the salmon with grapeseed or canola oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. Brush a light coating of the cooled glaze onto the salmon, reserving the rest. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked and flakes easy. Remove it from the oven and brush additional glaze onto the fish. Before serving, the fish can be placed under a broiler quickly to caramelize it, about 2-3 minutes. Garnish with additional parsley flakes and serve with the side dish of your choice.
