Ingredients

Ingredients

  • balsamic vinegar
    1/2 cup
  • Dijon mustard
    2 tsp
  • honey
    2 tsp
  • salmon filets (4 oz each)
    2
  • green onion (chopped)

Directions

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet.

  2. In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, Dijon mustard, and honey to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until thick, about 10 minutes.

  3. Brush the salmon filets with half of the balsamic glaze and reserve the other half. Bake the salmon for 10-14 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  4. Remove the salmon from the oven and pour the remaining glaze over the salmon. Top with green onion and serve hot.

    Is this truly a balsamic vinegar glaze? If so, please tell me what kind of balsamic vinegar was used because all the balsamics in my grocery area are very dark, while this sauce is very light, almost like a honey-dijon glaze. Is the half cup of balsamic vinegar the right measurement? I followed the recipe exactly, but the meal was not good. Did I miss something?

    This recipe is wonderful. I have done salmon for years with reduced balsamic alone. The balsamic and the mustard are good for me. I leave the honey out. I like to cook a lot. Things suddenly change when you have diabetes, but you can still enjoy many recipes, watching the portions. Thank you for your website!

    Absolutely delicious plus quick and easy as a bonus, We put the sauce on chicken on the grill instead of bar b due sauce. Yummmmm.
