Do you like salmon? I happen to love salmon, so I’m going to share with you a super easy way to whip up some balsamic glazed salmon.
Pick up some salmon on the way home and you can be eating in no time. Salmon also offers a great source of protein as well as “good” fats. I have to be careful when I get all nutritional as I am by no means an expert in that category. However, I do know a bit as I usually try to eat healthy and stay fit.
Back to the salmon. For this dish, I like to pair it with basmati rice and a simple green vegetable such as spinach or kale.
- 2 Salmon fillets
- 1 Tsp. olive oil
- 1/4 Cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. fresh dill
- Cracked black pepper
- Preheat saute pan to medium high heat.
- Pat salmon dry with paper towel.
- Season with cracked black pepper.
- Sear salmon on both sides (3 minutes per side).
- Add balsamic vinegar and dill, continue cooking until translucent (should flake with a fork).
- Drizzle sauce over salmon.
Zesty Tip: Using just a bit of olive oil and making sure to preheat the pan are the two tips for a perfectly sauteed piece of fish. Also remember to let the fish cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes (depending on the thickness) to develop a nice crust. Be sure not to crowd the fish; cook it in batches rather than overcrowd the pan.
Question of the day: What is your favorite type of fish?
So there you have it… a simple salmon dish that can be enjoyed by all. This is a great switch up if you are a meat eater. I hope you have a wonderful day.
