Sweet Balsamic Glazed Grilled Salmon

"Four ingredients - balsamic, honey, orange zest and juice, and salmon ... OK ... salt and pepper too. A simple mix and brush on the salmon as it cooks. Now, I prefer an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan, but a broiler would even work. The outdoor grill just gives it so much flavor. It is simple, easy and quick to prepare. You can serve this with just about everything. I love to grill some zucchini and maybe some potato wedges right on the grill as the salmon cooks. NO dishes and easy. Note: As a twist, my last picture I used white balsamic and baked it. The taste was a bit lighter, but still came out wonderful."

Exceptionally delicious salmon and we loved it for our dinner. I served it with one of your yummy salads!.

  US | Metric  Print Ingredients
  • 4 to 6 ounces salmon fillets (4-6 fillets, skin on the bottom side)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1 small orange (cut in half, zest and juice one half; and slice the other for a garnish)
  • Non-stick spray (or olive oil)
  • Salt and pepper

What You Will Need

No special items needed.
  How to Make

Step 1

Salmon ... Take the salmon out of the refrigerator to take the chill off. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Dressing ... Mix the vinegar, honey, orange zest and orange juice together and set to the side.

Step 3

Grill ... A medium high grill or grill pan. Spray the grill with a non stick spray or brush with oil. Brush the top of the salmon (flesh side) and put that side down first on the grill. Cook 3-4 minutes until you have a nice sear or grill marks. Flip the salmon over and brush the top of the salmon again. Cook another 5-8 minutes until the salmon is firm to the touch, still pink, but cooked through. Don't over cook ... a little pink/red inside is good - it will be very moist. Add the remaining orange slices to the grill the last couple of minutes to get a light char.

Step 4

Serve ... Plate the salmon with one of the orange slices and ENJOY! As I said, I love to grill some zucchini or potatoes right on the grill along side the fish for an easy quick dinner.

Review by ChefChickee

Ease of making such a delicious meal with this salmon gets 5 stars from me! We loved this salmon and I can't think of a better way to prepare it so we will have this many more times both grilled and in the oven or on my inside grill. Very tasty!


Review by Tannie

So simple and so easy. I used a grill pan to prepare mine. It was really a nice dinner. I used a blood orange, which gave the salmon a lovely pink color.
