Introduction

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!

Ingredients

    1 tbsp honey
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
    Red pepper flakes, to taste
    Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
    4 wild caught salmon fillets {about 5 oz each}




Directions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season both sides of salmon with salt and cracked pepper. Add salmon to skillet and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.


Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together vinegar and honey. Add vinegar mixture to skillet and simmer until fish is fork-tender and liquid reduces and thickens, about 5 minutes. For a thicker, reduced sauce, simmer for 5 to 10 additional minutes.

    The nutritional info. on this recipe is wrong. It says each salmon fillet should be approx. 5 oz however that comes out at 258 cals. - 3/15/10

  • I need some expert advice. Most Salmon I buy is 1" think on the big end. I usually take off the skin prior to cookin. To make sure it is done, cause I miss sometimes, what is the minimum time per side, cooking indoors in a skillet. This recipe sounds great but want to clear up my question before try - 8/13/13
