Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Honey Balsamic Salmon

IT Guy won’t touch fish. Won’t. Touch. It. So of course if I ever want it, I have to have it when he’s not around because he really doesn’t even like the smell. But I love salmon and when my DIL gave me some salmon the other day I knew I’d have to cook it for myself for lunch. And that’s just what I did. This recipe makes enough for 4 salmon fillets but you could probably do 6 with this amount of glaze. It’s super good if you like salmon like I do. Whip up a yummy side dish with this....rice or risotto comes to mind. Kinda fancy but oh so simple!

Honey Balsamic Salmon
4 salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic ~ minced
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil then spray with cooking spray.
In a small skillet over medium heat, cook the garlic in the olive oil for a few seconds.
Add the balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard, salt and pepper.
Cook until reduced, about 3 - 4 minutes.
Place salmon fillets on the foil then brush with balsamic mixture.
Cook salmon for 15 minutes, glazing every 5 minutes.
Serve over rice or with fresh veggies.

Here we go! I only show 
two salmon fillets in my 
picture but you can do 
4 - 6 with this recipe.

Brown the garlic for a 
little bit in the olive oil.

Then add the rest of 
the stuff for the sauce.

Baste the salmon and bake for about 
15 minutes, basting every 5 minutes.
