Salmon with balsamic marinade

Time to move off the gloom-n-doom and get us some delicious recipes. This time, it's fresh salmon, oven roasted with a balsamic marinade. So rich and delicious, so filled with healthy fats and proteins, and so so easy.

We start with fresh salmon steaks, which you can find at (wait for it) MY Hannaford's in Modena! You can pobably get them at Gadaletto's or Adams, maybe even Shoprite or Stop and Shop. But I KNOW you can get them at Hanaford in Modena. Six-ounces pieces of fresh and uniform wonderfulness.

You can pair this with one glass of a nice savignon blanc and zucchini with shallots and fresh oregano for a delicious satisfying meal. Oh, yes a salad would be good, too, with mixed spring greens, alphafa sprouts, fresh dill and fresh torn basil, topped with a nice lemon salad dressing, or something like Newman's Own Lite Balsamic (my go-to dressing when I don't make my own).

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon

Serves: 4


1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tsp honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
