Tangy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Picture this: a perfectly seared salmon fillet, glistening with a rich, tangy balsamic glaze that’s both sweet and savory. This is the kind of dish that elevates an ordinary dinner into an extraordinary dining experience. The marriage of the delicate salmon with the boldness of balsamic creates a symphony of flavors that dance on your taste buds.


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by making the balsamic glaze. In a small saucepan, combine the balsamic vinegar, honey, minced garlic, and dried thyme. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and let the glaze simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until it’s thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  3. While the glaze is simmering, season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a bit of oil.
  5. Place the salmon fillets in the skillet, skin-side up, and cook for about 3-4 minutes until they get a nice sear.
  6. Flip the fillets and brush the tops generously with the balsamic glaze.
  7. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  8. Remove from the heat and brush with more glaze.
  9. Serve the salmon hot, drizzled with any remaining glaze and garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
