Balsamic Glazed Salmon Fillets
October is National Seafood Month! Enjoy an easy dinner with fresh balsamic glazed salmon fillets. We tweaked a recipe from allrecipes.com for a healthy & delicious dinner! Serves 5 to 6.
6 5-ounce-fresh salmon fillets
1/3 cup Villa Graziella Organic 8 Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar di Modena
3 tablespoons of Villa Graziella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
5 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons of dry white wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon oregano
Sea salt & fresh cracked pepper to season
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with foil & brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
In a small saucepan, over medium heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Add garlic & cook until soft & golden, approx. 3-5 minutes, do not brown.
Add white wine, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt & pepper.
Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes, until liquid thickens, remove from heat & set aside.
Arrange salmon on foil lined baking sheet, skin side down.
Brush fillets with balsamic glaze, season with oregano.
Bake 10-15 minutes. To check for doneness, insert a knife on an angle into the center of salmon & gently part the meat. If opaque & flakes into small pieces, salmon is cooked.
Remove fillets from oven, brush with remaining glaze, season with salt & pepper, allow fillets to “rest” 2-3 minutes & remove skin.
Serve & enjoy with Villa Graziella artisan crafted IGT Bianco Toscano white wine made with organic grapes.
