Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets Recipe
A glaze featuring balsamic vinegar, garlic, honey, white wine and Dijon mustard makes baked salmon fillets extraordinary.
These simple and few ingredients make for quick but elegant entertaining. The final broiling caramelizes the sugar to give the salmon its attractive, mildly sweet glaze.
Excellent and easy recipe! I did add an additional 1/2 Tablespoon of honey, but other than that, did not change a thing. It had a richness of flavor that I often associate with grilled salmon.
I made this recipe twice tonight and it was great both times. (long story) First, I marinated the salmon for about 6 hours in the mixture (no changes) and my DH grilled it. The parts that made it off the grill (he slightly overcooked it and then managed to drop half of it into the grill) had a wonderful flavor to them. Since we ended up with less than a piece of salmon between us, I ended up making another piece. This time, we followed the directions on the recipe (using the reduction as a glaze) and that came out excellent as well. We both love salmon and we liked that the flavor of the salmon still came out. Great recipe.
I'm stymied as to why people thought the glaze smelled bad or why they thought it was too vinegary. This was just perfect. Loved it! Made it as written, and I'll make it again with other fish/chicken/rice. Thank you!
The glaze made the salmon very moist but did not add too much flavor.
Delicious! I didn't have white wine, so I substituted chicken broth. But, other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The salmon came out perfect. Will definately make this again! Thanks!!
Delicious, will definitely do it again, it was a perfect complement to the salmon.
