      This sauce was fabulous, and it couldn't possibly be easier to prepare. I just baked my tilapia and poured this rich, brown sauce over the top...perfect. I don't use a very expensive balsamic vinegar (I wish I could afford it! :) ) but this was even good with a mid-priced vinegar. Thanks so much for posting this! PS I used unsalted butter as suggested, and I would strongly recommend that future cooks do the same...the sauce somehow has a salty taste without that extra salt added.

      We really liked the sauce. It IS good. We just thought that Tilapia is too mild a fish to stand up to this strong of a sauce. Balsamic vinegar on it's own is strong enough, but as a reduction, it packs quite a whallop. I used 25 year old aged Balsamic vinegar, so maybe the problem was mine...the longer the age, the stronger the vinegar. But, I did make it again last night as a sauce for a pork roast. Outstanding !

      I don't think it needs to be reduced. I only used like a T butter. We liked it, but prefer lemony tilapia.
