Balsamic - Glazed Pepper Salmon
Recipe Insight: Salmon provides most of the inflammatory-fighting, in addition to brain-boosting omega-3 fatty- acids in this recipe.
Recipe Suggestion: Serve with brown rice.
This recipe provides 4 servings.
1) 4 salmon fillets (approx. 5 ounces each)
2) 1 tablespoon olive oil
3) 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
4) sea salt and cracked black pepper, sparingly, to taste
5) 1.5 tablespoons honey
1) Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season both sides of salmon with sea salt and cracked pepper. Add salmon to skillet and cook for approx. 2 mins per side, until golden brown.
2) In the meantime, using a small bowl, whisk together honey and vinegar. Add vinegar/honey mixture to skillet and simmer until fish is fork-tender and liquid reduces and thickens, approx. 2 mins. If you want a thicker consistency, reduced sauce, simmer for an additional 3 mins.
