Looking for something a little bit different for a holiday meal? How about some salmon prepared with a balsamic glaze? Liberty Market has a great local maple syrup that would be perfect for this recipe, and you can find some terrific balsamic vinegars at the 2nd St. Market. Trader Joe's always has some nice salmon. The Flop! seasoning mix from Dayton Area Rabbit Network goes well on this, but until your order arrives you can use salt and pepper.
Not interested in salmon? The glaze was amazing when preparing frozen faux chicken strips as well - simply saute the faux chicken strips to the desired brownness, then add the glaze and stir until the faux chicken is coated.
Balsamic glazed salmon
Four 6-ounce salmon fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
The Flop! seasoning mix from DARN, or sea salt and pepper
For the glaze:
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, maple syrup, mustard and garlic to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook until thick, about 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put the salmon on the baking sheet and drizzle both sides of the salmon with the olive oil. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons of The Flop! seasoning mix or else 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and roast until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 12 minutes.
To serve, drizzle the glaze over the salmon.
