balsamic glazed salmon

Balsamic and salmon go together perfectly. Make dinner time effortlessly decadent with a sweet balsamic glaze made with minimal sugar that takes no time at all. We ate ours with that zucchini ribbon salad!

Ingredients:

for the balsamic glaze

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 Tbsp agave
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 clove garlic, fine minced

for the salmon

  • 2 lbs salmon, cut into 4-6 oz filets
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • olive oil

Directions:

Take out your salmon and allow it to rest at room temperature. Preheat your grill.

In a medium saucepan, mix all the ingredients for the glaze. Heat over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer over low-medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce becomes thick and reduces to about 1/3 cup. This’ll take about 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat.

Rub salmon fillets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay, skin side up, on the grill. Cook salmon on open grill for roughly 3 minutes or until the filets have some beautiful golden brown hashmarks and come off the grill easily without sticking. Flip over to skin side down and continue to cook until done, roughly another 3-5 minutes.

Remove from grill, drizzle with that glaze and eat up.
