Balsamic Salmon

I'm not a big seafood eater but occasionally like salmon.  I tried this recipe and cooked salmon for the first time!  It was delicious!

  • 2 salmon fillets (about 3-4 oz each)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Sea Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium to high heat.  Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper.  Add salmon to skillet and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.

2. While the salmon is cooking, whisk together honey, vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.  Add the vinegar mixture to the skillet and simmer until the fish is fork-tender and liquid reduces and thickens.  This should take approximately 5 minutes. The longer you simmer, the thicker the sauce.
