Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Strawberry Salsa

Ok. I know, I know...this doesn't sound typical for salmon. But, just trust me, after trying this you will totally agree this the best combo.


Ingredients for Salmon:

You favorite salmon fillets

Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar for Drizzling

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Balsamic Glaze for finishing


Ingredients for Strawberry Salsa:

1 1/2 C. of diced Strawberries (about 1/2 pint)

1/4 C. of chopped basil

A few tablespoons of diced red onion (or however much you like)

2 T. Olive Oil

1 T. Balsamic Vinegar

Salt and Pepper to Taste


Directions:

Lay out your salmon filets and drizzle with a little olive oil followed by some balsamic vinegar. Bonus points if you have a strawberry infused vinegar! Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Bake (375 degrees), grill or smoke (250 degrees) until the salmon reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees. If you are baking, I bake until they are almost done (130ish) and then broil until they are finished (165). The broiling gives them the nice, glazed finish so don't skip that!


While the salmon is baking, toss the salsa ingredients together.


Once the salmon has finished, top with the strawberry salsa and finish with a pretty drizzle of a balsamic glaze (or a homemade balsamic reduction).
