Hi 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.
