Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets Recipe

This delicious baked salmon dish is a perfect pairing for that white wine you’ve been enjoying this summer. The best part? You’ll only have to part with a little bit of your wine to make it.

What You’ll Need:

  • 6, five-ounce salmon fillets
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs. 2012 San Francisco Cup Chardonnay
  • 1 tbs. honey
  • 4 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs. chopped fresh oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. While the oven’s getting warmed up, coat a small saucepan with non-stick cooking spray. Add the garlic and cook over medium heat while stirring until soft (about 3 minutes).
  3. Mix in Chardonnay, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard and salt & pepper. Simmer uncovered for about 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  4. Arrange salmon fillets on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush fillets with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with oregano.
  5. 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.

Bon appetit!
