Sweet Balsamic Glazed Grilled Salmon

Prep Time
Cook Time
Ready In

"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."

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.

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!

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.
