My Favorite Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Once upon a time, I found an amazing, naturally gluten-free balsamic glazed salmon recipe on Pinterest. It immediately got onto a weekly rotation for an easy and healthy after work dinner. I’d whip it out when guests came over to impress them. It is my favorite recipe to date.
Then one day, I went back to look at the recipe and it was gone. GONE. Gone forever!

Goodbye, wonderful pin 😦

I was sad not to have the original, but luckily I’ve made it so many times that I remember roughly how to make it.
From the best I can remember, here is my favorite, delicious Baked Balsamic Salmon.
salmon filets
4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp honey
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
dried herbs, to taste (Italian seasoning, dried basil or dried oregano work best!)
In a saucepan, saute the garlic in the olive oil over medium heat. Once it begins to brown, carefully add the balsamic vinegar and honey, whisking the mixture together. It will start to bubble, continue whisking for a minute then immediately remove from heat to avoid burning.
Marinate the salmon in the balsamic sauce for at least 20 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 400F/200C. Put salmon in a baking dish and pour over the sauce. Salt and pepper the filets and sprinkle a bit of dried herbs on top. Bake salmon for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
