Balsamic Glazed Salmon Fillets
Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets
A glaze featuring balsamic vinegar, garlic, honey, white wine and Dijon mustard makes baked salmon fillets extraordinary.
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp white wine
1 tbsp honey
100ml balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
6 salmon fillets
1. Preheat oven to 200 deg C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; add garlic and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Mix in white wine, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Take off the heat and add oregano.
3. Arrange salmon fillets on prepared baking tray. Brush fillets with balsamic glaze.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 14 minutes, or until flesh flakes easily with a fork. Brush fillets with remaining glaze.
Try serving these salmon fillets over a baby leaf salad, and use extra glaze for the dressing. Add chopped spring onions and sliced red pepper to round out the salad.
