This has become a regular in our dinner rotation– it’s a quick, easy & healthy meal. You can’t go wrong with that! I found the original recipe from Well Plated on Pinterest (where else?!) & we’ve tried a few others, but none are as good as this one! I mentioned on Snapchat (@thelovenotes) that I’d share the recipe a few weeks ago, so here it finally is!
YIELD: Serves 2
COOK TIME: 20 minutes
- 2 (5 ounce) salmon fillets
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 large cloves minced garlic
- 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp honey (we subbed for organic maple syrup once because we were out of honey & it tasted great!)
- 2 tsp Dijon coarse ground mustard
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, coat with non-stick cooking spray & lay the salmon skin-side down (if it has skin).
Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic & cook until aromatic, about 2 minutes– watch it carefully, it turns light brown then burns quickly after that. Add the balsamic vinegar, honey or maple syrup, mustard, salt & pepper. Whisk & simmer until the mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.
Pair with brown rice & a green for the perfect meal!
I hope you enjoy! Share pictures if you make it, I’d love to see how it turns out!! Thanks for stopping by–
