Balsamic Glazed Salmon

I love salmon.  I got hooked well over a year ago when I received the best salmon ever from Anderson Seafoods.  It is a hearty fish that is incredible when it’s cooked right.  Over the years we have tried lots of different recipes and we always lean towards the ones that have a nice glaze and are a bit sweet.  This Balsamic Glazed Salmon has great flavor and is easy to make!  That makes it a winner in our book ๐Ÿ˜‰

Salmon is a highly nutritious fish and offers a wide range of health benefits due to its rich nutrient content.

Health Benefits of Salmon

High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These essential fatty acids have been associated with various health benefits, including reducing inflammation, supporting heart health, and promoting brain function.

Heart Health: The omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon can help lower triglyceride levels, reduce blood pressure, and decrease the risk of heart disease by reducing inflammation and improving blood vessel function.

Brain Health: DHA, one of the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon, is particularly important for brain health. It plays a crucial role in brain development and function, and consuming enough DHA may help improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.

Rich in Protein: Salmon is a great source of high-quality protein, which is essential for muscle repair, maintaining bone health, and supporting various physiological processes in the body.

Vitamin D: Salmon is one of the few natural food sources of vitamin D, which is vital for bone health, immune function, and overall well-being.

Selenium: Salmon is a good source of selenium, an essential trace mineral that acts as an antioxidant and supports the immune system.

Astaxanthin: Salmon gets its pink color from a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin, which may have anti-inflammatory and skin-protective properties.

Eye Health: The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon, particularly DHA, are beneficial for eye health and may help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and dry eye syndrome.

So, not only is salmon great for you – it tastes great!

  1. Those pictures make it look SO good. I like my salmon glaze a little sweet too, my problem is I always seem to overcook it or undercook it. For some reason I can’t seem to just get it right….so I end up ordering it out more than I cook it at home.

  2. I love balsamic vinegar & salmon is one of the few fish I like so I’ll definitely use this recipe as the rest of the family all love fish & are always complaining they don’t eat it often enough. I always tell them to cook their own but strangely, no-one has!

  3. I need more recipes like this that are fresh and light for days when I run because I feel like it cancels out when I have a heavy meal afterwards.
