So yesterday I found this beautiful piece of Sockeye Salmon and got home and decided I wanted to prepare it differently than I had before. I went to probably 25 websites looking for a glaze for it. I wrote down 19 ingredients from all the recipes and then decided on a method and only 7 ingredients and I had them all in the pantry or refrigerator and you should too!!!


olive oil for sauteing
2 tbl unsalted butter, melted
3 tsp salt (preferably sea salt but regular is fine)
3/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Melt the butter and spread it on top of the fish (not on the skin side). Combine salt, pepper and mustard and sprinkle on top of the butter. Warm the honey in the microwave and stir in the balsamic vinegar. Carefully spread a layer of that on top of the spices. Reserve some marinade for basting and to add on top of the fish when you serve.

In a oven proof saute pan, add a little olive oil to cover the bottom and place the fish skin side down in the pan. Cover it and cook on medium-high for about 10 minutes. Take the lid off and baste the fish with more of the honey-vinegar mixture. Place the pan in the oven and cook until your desired doneness (for me about 10 minutes longer - medium rare).

Pour a small amount of the marinade on top of the fish and serve. We also added some of the marinade to our asparagus-tomato dish. So easy and absolutely fabulous!
