Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Recipe from the American Diabetes Association, diabetes.org

Ingredients
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
2 (4-ounce) salmon filets
1/2 green onion, chopped

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet.

In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, Dijon mustard and honey to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until thick, about 10 minutes. 

Brush the salmon filets with half of the balsamic glaze and reserve the other half. Bake the salmon for 10-14 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

Remove the salmon from the oven and pour the remaining glaze over the salmon. Top with green onion and serve hot.

Yields 2 servings.
