Honey Balsamic Glazed Salmon

MED logo MED logo


This salmon is simple and delicious. No capers? No problem. Use chopped green olives instead. Don’t be afraid to experiment. You can replace fresh rosemary with oregano, savory, tarragon, or thyme. Add more of the herbs you love to create a dish that is all your own. You can also sear the salmon and put the sauce on top as opposed to baking. Just heat the sauce to combine the ingredients and spoon onto the fish (as pictured).

    The honey balsamic glazed salmon was amazing. Very easy to make and wow how flavorful. I boiled the glaze like instructed and it surprised us. It was so sweet and complimented the salmon so well. This is a recipe I will make again and again. Magnificent! Thank you.
