Salmon Balsamico


This is a simple and tasty recipe that includes two of my favourite ingredients, namely salmon and tomatoes. It is a dish I make regularly and which comes from Norene Gilletz’s Healthy Helpings – the only thing I have altered is the cooking time. I serve it with fried rice and vegetables.

Serves four people

4 salmon fillets
salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Roma tomatoes, cubed
1-2 tablespoons chopped frozen or fresh basil

Arrange the fish in a single layer in an oiled baking dish – I use olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Combine the vinegar with the brown sugar, garlic, tomatoes, and basil; pour over the fish. Marinate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 450 F° / 220 C°.

Bake uncovered for at least 15 minutes – because of the tomatoes on top, the fish won’t go dry. Serves 4.

    • I don’t remember the fish ever getting crispy. I believe it is because of the tomatoes on top. And the high temperature is probably to get them to cook properly.
