Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Ingredients Balsamic Glaze:

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons white wine or chicken broth

1 tablespoon honey

½ tablespoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, divided

½ teaspoon garlic clove, finely minced

Ingredients for Salmon:

2 (5 oz) salmon fillets

1 lemon, cut in half

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar


1. Squeeze ½ lemon over salmon and let it rest 10 minutes at room temperature. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine balsamic vinegar, white wine, honey, dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon rosemary and garlic. Heat mixture over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer over medium-low heat until sauce has thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Preheat broiler. Line a baking pan with foil.

3. Add both salmon fillets to the baking pan. Sprinkle each with lots of lemon and drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Season each piece with a little salt and pepper. Place in broiler and cook until salmon is browned, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip salmon to opposite side and continue to broil for about 3 minutes, until cooked through.

4. Plate each piece of salmon. Drizzle half the warmed glaze over each piece. Sprinkle the top of each with ¼ teaspoon chopped rosemary.

Healthy Benefits
Salmon is high in protein and is a rich source of vitamins A and the B-group vitamins. Salmon is a good source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Perhaps, most important, salmon contains Omega-3 oil, which decreases the risk of coronary heart disease and certain cancers.

Storage Tip
Store balsamic vinegar in a cool, dry place, such as a pantry. Unopened it will keep almost indefinitely; once opened, it can be stored up to 6 months at room temperature.
