Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe.

Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food.

When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety.

The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and would be perfect for a dinner party. Paired with my Holiday Potato Medley, this would be an impressive meal sure to become a staple on your dinner table.

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

2/3 C Balsamic vinegar
3 Tbs raw honey, melted
2 Tbs whole grain Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 green onions, chopped
6- 6oz  salmon fillets, skinned

In a large zip top bag, add the Balsamic vinegar, melted honey, Dijon, salt and green onions. Mush to combine. Add the salmon to the zip top bag, seal tightly and turn to coat. Place in a shallow dish and refrigerate for 2 hrs, turning after 1 hr.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove salmon fillets from the zip top bag. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in the oven for 15-25 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork. While fish bakes, pour the marinade from the zip top bag, into a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half and thick.

Once fish is cooked through, brush with glaze and garnish with more green onion (green tops only).

  1. That sounds delicious! I love salmon but am not that good at cooking it up at home (and having it taste good). Pinned.

    1. The trick to this one is marinating the salmon and thickening the glaze for the end.

  2. This looks so good. I am trying to eat more fish and this recipe will certainly be added to my meal plan. Why do you use raw honey may I ask? Does it taste different than clover?

    1. Raw honey is unpasteurized so it contains more nutrients than pasteurized honey. It is full of antioxidants. Regular honey can be used. It's just a matter of preference :)

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
