Today’s recipe is a blend from Jackie Gifford with Bellindora, that takes your everyday salmon and puts it over the top with a glaze made with Bellindora Peach Balsamic Vinegar, fresh garlic, and Dijon mustard. I then added my spin with a touch of dry white wine and honey that takes ordinary baked salmon fillets to extraordinary. The steps are easy to execute using everyday ingredients, except the Balsamic. Always use good Balsamic vinegar.
I made this last night and it was a hit, and the best damn salmon I’ve ever made. So give it a try…..
Optional: Add a few fresh slices of peaches seared or natural to add a touch of sweetness and pretty up the dish.
6 (5 ounce) salmon fillets
1 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup Bellindora Peach Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp white wine or water
1 Tbsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp Bellindora Salad Seasoning or you can use dry oregano, or a mix of Italian seasonings.
Optional: top with sliced fresh peaches
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and pour about 1 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil and spread all over foil lined sheet pan.
Coat a small saucepan with remaining olive oil. Over medium heat, cook and stir garlic until soft, about 3 minutes.
Mix in, peach balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey and salt and pepper.
Use a wire whisk and stir continuously uncovered for about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. If glaze gets too thick you can add water or a white wine, allow to cool.
Save half of the glaze to brush on salmon when it comes out of the oven.
Arrange salmon fillets on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush fillets with balsamic glaze, and sprinkle with pepper and Bellindora Salad Seasoning or you can use oregano, or a mix of Italian seasonings.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 14 minutes, or until flesh flakes easily with a fork.
Brush fillets with remaining glaze, and season with salt and pepper. Use a spatula to transfer fillets to serving platter, leaving the skin behind on the foil.
Add fresh or cooked peaches for presentation.
