Seared Salmon with Balsamic Glaze
You all know how I dislike salmon but, I found this recipe in my new Gourmet cookbook and I LIKED it!
Had to pass it on.
oh.. I followed the directions on this! I think it's a first for me.
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons veggie oil
4 (6 ounce) center cut pieces salmon fillet with skin
Stir together vinegar, water, lemon juice, and sugar in a small bowl. Set a side.
Pat salmon dry and season well with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Increase heat to high and add fish skin side up. Sear until well browned, about 4 minutes. Turn fish over and sear until just cooked through, 3 -4 more minutes.
Transfer fish to platter and carefully add vinegar mixture to skillet. ( LIQUID WILL BUBBLE A LOT AND THERE WILL BE A LOT OF STEAM, OUR FIRE ALARM WENT OFF). Simmer, stirring, until thickened and reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 2 minutes. spoon glaze over salmon.
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost
