Clean That Plate (Clean Eating)

I started "clean eating" on 4/26/09, and decided to save some of my favorite recipes, including those I've created.

Balsamic Glazed Cracked Pepper Salmon - Clean Eating
Very Good 4.4/5
(31 ratings)

This recipe is super easy, quick, delicious AND qualifies as a Clean Eating meal.

I've made this recipe twice in the past week and my super picky husband has cleaned his plate both times! I usually serve it with brown rice and a vegetable.

My personal notes on this dish...less is more. Add the vinegar/honey mixture in a little bit at a time - you don't want your salmon swimming in it, just coated in it. The balsamic vinegar will darken the color of the salmon, so you may think it's done or burning, but it's probably just discolored. I like to cook my salmon until it is very firm and it has an almost hard glaze to the outside. Cook it for a minute or two longer than you think you need to!

Also, for the red pepper flakes, less is more again! I love the flavor of red pepper flakes and honey {I even eat that mixture on my chicken nuggets} remember, you can always add more, but you can't take it away!

Enjoy!

I started making this years ago; my husband loves it! I was so excited to realize it was "clean." I've modified a recipe from one out of a cookbook we received when we opened our first checking account as a married couple.

from HEALTHY COOKING magazine (Taste of Home). I measured some of the ingredients, and while the original recipe said to cook the frozen corn, I chose not to and it was just fine (nice and crispy).
