Balsamic Salmon

28 May

This is my most favourite salmon recipe ever!  It is so easy and SO delicious.  I’ve tried lots of others but none can replace this old standby!  All I needed to do to clean it up was swap out the brown sugar for some maple syrup and it’s perfect.  I love making it with fresh garden dill, mmm mmm!

Balsamic Salmon

  • 3 or 4 salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill (or 1/4 tsp dried dill)Method
  1. Line baking dish with tinfoil (leaving enough overhanging to seal over top) and place salmon in it
  2. Whisk remaining ingredients together in a bowl and pour over the salmon
  3. Flip salmon over to make sure both sides are well coated
  4. If time permits allow it to marinade at room temperature for 15 mins
  5. Seal tinfoil over salmon
  6. Baking at 450 F for approximately 15 min (cooking time will vary depending on thickness of salmon.  The fish should flake easily when cooked and be less red and more pink)
  7. Uncover and let it broil for a minute longer
  8. Shove it in your face!

    My favourite salmon via Jamie Oliver:

    -four pieces of salmon, four helpings of green beans, pesto, lemon, and olive oil.
    Take four pieces of tin foil, put one handful of green beans down, then a piece of salmon. Put a heaping spoonful of pesto on top of the salmon, then squeeze the juice from half a lemon on top, as well as a glug of olive oil. salt and pepper as desired. Fold up the tin foil so it stays nice and tight (I usually use a second piece) and bake at about 400 for 20 minutes or so. It is delicious!!
