Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    - 2 (6 oz) Raw Salmon Fillets (more even the thickness the better)
    - 1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
    - 1 tsp. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
    - 1/2 tsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
    Salt
    Pepper

Directions

Serves 2

1) Heat oven to 450 degress

2) Season Salmon Fillets with salt and pepper and place in a baking dish.
3) Cook Salmon in Oven for about 12 minutes or until cooked through

4) While fish is cooking, reduce vinegar to about 1/6 cup stirring in small saucepan over medium high heat (about 10 mins)
5) Remove reduced vinegar from heat and stir in lemon juice.
6) Season to taste

7) Place cooked salmon on serving or 2 individual plates and drizzle with glaze

NOTES: You may want to cover salmon with foil to prevent drying during last minutes of cooking. Or maybe a pan of water on the rack beneath it to steam some.

- Also, coat the baking dish with parchment, foil, or cooking spray as the skin likes to stick.

  • I'm always a little fearful of fish recipes because I don't want to overcook it, but this was so easy and it came out moist and delicious. I used orange juice and zest because I was out of lemons. The balsamic glaze gave the salmon just the right "pop" of flavor. - 3/12/13

  • This was okay, but the balsamic vinegar was a tad too assertive. Also, the directions do not indicate where to use the oil. I added mine to the reduced vinegar, but in retrospect, it makes more sense to brush it on top of the salmon before baking. Mine took 20 minutes to reach 160 degrees for 1 lb. - 9/23/08
