Balsamic Salmon

IMG_3801Hi there– here’s a quick meal idea.  We had it for lunch last Sunday and it was just right.  Easy enough for every day and pretty enough to serve to friends–with a rice mixture and  some roasted Brussel sprouts.  Dinner.

1 pound salmon filets
2 tab. olive oil
2 tab. honey
3 tab. balsamic vinegar*
2 shakes red pepper
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

Season the salmon with salt & pepper on both sides.  Heat the olive oil in a skillet and then drop in the salmon.  Cook just 1 to 2 minutes on each side to sear the salmon.

While the salmon is cooking, whisk together the honey, vinegar and red pepper.  Add the honey-vinegar to the pan, turning the fish to coat both sides.  Simmer on low for 5 minutes until the fish flakes with a fork and the sauce reduces a bit.

That’s it!  Quick & delicious.

*I’ve learned that there are such a range of balsamic vinegars.  We received a beautiful bottle of aged balsamic from friends and it is so dense and rich, I’m hooked on it.
