Salmon with Orange & Balsamic Glaze

Makes 4 servings


Nonstick cooking spray
4 4-oz. salmon filets
½ tsp salt

1 large orange, thinly sliced
¼ cup balsamic vinegar, plus more to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil

*You could also add: 1 cup sautéed spinach or 1 cup steamed broccoli


Preheat oven to 400° F. Heat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over high heat. Sprinkle the salmon with salt. Place the fillets in the skillet, flesh-side down. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until the salmon begins to brown. Turn the salmon 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. Then 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 it. Serve immediately.
