RECIPE: Salmon with Balsamic-Honey Glaze

Salmon with Balsamic-Honey Glaze (8 servings)

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or  chicken broth (I used the broth)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (I didn’t have dijon, I ended up using spicy brown instead)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano


  1. Combine the first six ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Place salmon skin side down on a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spoon glaze over salmon; top with oregano.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Personal Review: Salmon in general is not my favorite fish, but when I saw this recipe in my latest issue of Taste of Home, I knew that I had to try it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I really thought that the glaze was delicious and perfectly complemented salmon.

I can’t really say much negative about this recipe – it was a quick meal to come together, perfect for a weeknight and it definitely beat any way I’ve had salmon prepared in a restaurant.

Highly recommended.
