I saw this on Sara's Secrets and couldn't wait to try it! The sauce brings out the sweetness in the fish. Enjoy!

The glaze is amazing! I added about 1/8 tsp ginger and maybe 1/8 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (7/8 c. balsamic vinegar) to give it a little Asian flavor. I also added a little cornstarch, I wasn't sure how long it would take and all the rest of the food was waiting. I use stainless steel pans and high heat was way too hot...although, I wanted the salmon cooked through not seared, which is what the recipe is for. So very good and this glaze is going to be a new favorite! Thanks Sharon!

Directions See How It's Made
- Stir together balsamic vinegar, water, lemon juice, and brown sugar in a small bowl.
- Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper.
- Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat, not smoking. Increase heat to high, add salmon skin side up, and sear until well browned, about 4 minutes.
- Turn fish over and sear until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more.
- Transfer salmon to plates and carefully add vinegar mixture to skillet (liquid will bubble vigorously and steam).
- Simmer, stirring, until thickened and reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 2 minutes.
- Spoon glaze over salmon.
- Serve and enjoy!
