If you love Salmon you need to try this. I ate the whole thing all by myself. My daughter doesn't like Salmon so I try to make it when she isn't home. I've been wanting to try this recipe for awhile but keep forgetting. I went to the Sunflower Market after work last night and picked up the Salmon. It was early yet so I decided to go through my recipes and do something different. And am I glad I did. I'm having this again very soon. I cut this because I was cooking for one. I didn't want you to think I ate 4 servings!! But I probably could have it was so good.
Seared Salmon with Balsamic Glaze
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T plus 1 tsp packed light brown sugar
4 6-oz center cut pieces of salmon fillet with skin
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 t olive oil
Stir together the vinegar, water, lemon juice and brown sugar in a small bowl.
Pat salmon dry and season with salt/pepper. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over moderately high heat. Add salmon skin side up and sear until browned about 4 minutes. Turn over and sear until cooked another 3 minutes or so.
Remove salmon from skillet and add vinegar mixture to skillet. It will bubble a lot. Simmer for a couple minutes, stirring until thickened and reduced. Pour glaze over salmon and enjoy!!
With it I roasted some fingerlings cut into wedges. Added a couple of smashed garlic cloves and a few leaves of Thai Basil. I roasted same all the veggies I do 400 30 minutes or so. Oh and put olive oil over all and mix with hands. Salt/pepper too. I use Kosher Salt and freshly ground pepper for everything. I was going to make rice but I needed to use the potatoes and they were very good with the salmon. I also had some sliced tomatoes that needed eaten. Today was market day and I wanted to get rid of everything.
For tonight I made Corn Chowder and a chocolate zucchini cake. I'm vegging now until dinner time. All I have to do is heat up the chowder and enjoy!!
Thank you all for you lovely comments and for visiting. You make my day!!
