Loop Sunday Lunch: Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

For today's Sunday Lunch, we feature Balsamic-glazed salmon fillets, a glaze of balsamic vinegar, garlic, honey, white wine and Dijon mustard makes baked salmon fillets extraordinary. 

Ready in: 30 minutes 

Serves: 6 

Ingredients

6 (5 ounce) salmon fillets

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon white wine

1 tablespoon honey

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray. 

2. Coat a small saucepan with non-stick cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook and stir garlic until soft, about 3 minutes. Mix in white wine, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. 

3. Arrange salmon fillets on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush fillets with balsamic glaze, and sprinkle with oregano. 

4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 14 minutes, or until flesh flakes easily with a fork. Brush fillets with remaining glaze, and season with salt and pepper. Use a spatula to transfer fillets to serving platter, leaving the skin behind on the foil. 

Tip: Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
