This was a very quick and easy dish to prepare, so that's definitely a plus. I did use the white balsamic (I had an unopened bottle on hand- must have been some sort of impulse purchase : )- ). The reduced vinegar made a lovely sweet sauce. The only thing I did differently was to give the fish a nice squirt of lemon juice (I do that with ALL my fish), and add some salt, which my family felt was lacking.<br/>All in all, a great dish, and I would probably make this again. Thanks for posting, Boomette!
I used a regular dark balsamic vinegar and thought I would be smart and make the glaze ahead of time well it set rather hard in the container so needed a quick zap in the microwave to liquidize it, As I used skin on salmon fillets I only glazed one side but we enjoyed crispy skin salmon with a lovely flavour from the reduced balsamic, thank you Boomette, made for Ausie/Kiwi Swap #46 November 2010.
A really perfect combination when coupling salmon with such a tart/sweet taste such as balsamic vinegar. A marriage made in heaven. 5 star plus on prep/cooking/and serving. Makes a beautiful presentation. I did add a bit of S&P on the fillets first, but other then that, kept to the recipe, except my vinegar was darker then recommended. It is to cold to use the grill so instead, I seared the fillets in a non-stick skillet (3 mins a side) warmed the vinegar and brushed the rest on the salmon post cooking. Served with white rice cooked in fresh thyme. Thank you Boomette! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* February 2009
