  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Category: Healthy Dinner
  • Method: Saute


  • 2 wild salmon fillets
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)
  • Organic greens


  1. 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 sauté pan over medium high heat. Increase heat to high, add salmon skin side up, and sear until well browned, about 4 minutes.
  2. Turn fish over and sear until just cooked through, about 3 minutes more. Transfer salmon to plates and carefully add vinegar mixture to skillet (liquid will bubble vigorously and steam).
  3. Simmer, stirring for about 2 minutes, until thickened. Spoon glaze over salmon and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve over a bed of organic greens and enjoy!


Please choose organic ingredients where possible.

Please always choose wild salmon, not farm-raised. Wild salmon has less calories and fat than farmed. Wild salmon also contains powerful antioxidants. Do not be fooled by organic salmon, it is still farmed. Always choose wild!
