- 2 5 oz salmon fillets
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp honey
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper fresh ground
- chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then coat with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes, watching carefully so that it does not burn.
Add the balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard, salt and pepper. Whisk and simmer until the mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.
Place salmon skin-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush liberally with the glaze. Bake for 5 minutes, brush again with the glaze, then bake 5 to 10 additional minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork and is cooked through.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.
