Salmon with Orange and Balsamic Glaze


  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 4 4-ounce wild salmon filets
  • 1 large orange, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Heat a large skillet with non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over high heat. Sprinkle the salmon with salt. Place the filets in the skillet , flesh-side down. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until the fish begins to brown. Turn the fish over, and layer the orange slices on top. Pour the vinegar around the edges of the salmon and slide the skillet into the oven.
  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until the edge of the salmon flakes when pressed with a fork but the center is still slightly pink. Add a little water or more vinegar if the balsamic becomes too dark or begins to burn. Transfer the salmon to plates and drizzle the vinegar over. Serve immediately.
