Look no further—you’ve just found the first, last and only way you’ll ever want to fix salmon again. The sweet and tangy flavors blend beautifully in this easy-to-remember recipe. —Mary Lou Timpson, Centennial Park, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
MAKES:8 servings
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
MAKES: 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano


  1. Combine the first six ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Place salmon skin side down on a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spoon glaze over salmon; top with oregano.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 8 servings.
Tip: to check for doneness, insert a fork at an angle into the thickest portion of the salmon and gently part the meat. When it's opaque and flakes into sections, it's cooked completely.

"The sauce never thickened! My husband hated it. The sauce was way to strong to our taste."

"I really did not like this recipe. I followed directions exactly, but the sauce would not thicken. I wound up having it boil for over 10 minutes before I saw any thickening. I think that's what caused the sauce to taste so horrible. I may try this again but not for a while. There are better salmon recipes out there."

"I baked the salmon on a salt block so only basted with the balsamic honey seasoning. So delicious!"

"I made this for dinner tonight. As I didn't have plain balsamic vinegar, only raspberry balsamic, I used that instead. I had thought the dijon may be a little too much with raspberry, so I omitted it, and the fresh oregano. I wanted a thicker glaze, so I reduced twice as long and added a two teaspoon cornstarch slurry, whisking while boilng. The fish came out tender, flaky, and flavorful. My hubby thought it was really good."
