Salmon with Honey Balsamic Glaze

17 Jul

I recently bought 2 packages of frozen salmon fillets at Fry’s, the Kroger brand salmon fillets.  On the back of the packaging was this recipe, and I thought I would give it a try.  I am tired of the plain old way I make salmon; brush with olive oil, sprinkle with lemon pepper, and cook on the George Foreman grill.  So, this was a nice change-up for us.  It was all ingredients I had on hand, so it was just a matter of mixing it up and brushing it on the salmon.  While it baked, I made Garlic Green Beans (this recipe, minus the cauliflower and Parmesan cheese).

Salmon with Honey Balsamic GlazeSalmon with Honey Balsamic Glaze
Recipe from a package of Kroger brand Atlantic Salmon Fillets

What you need:

4 salmon fillets, thawed and rinsed
1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced

How to make it:

Preheat the oven to 375 F.  Line a shallow baking pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Spoon mayonnaise into a small bowl.  Gradually whisk in the vinegar until smooth.  Whisk in the honey, sesame seeds, oregano, olive oil, and minced garlic.

Put the salmon in the baking dish, skin side down if there is skin.  Brush the tops and sides of all fillets with the glaze.

Bake in the preheated oven for 12-18 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.
