Mmmm. This was yummy. The combination of sweet honey, tart apples, and the richness of Balsamic vinegar were a perfect compliment to the strong flavor of the Salmon. And with only a few simple ingredients to gather, this was easy and fast. What’s not to like about that?
This topping would also be great over pork.
Salmon with Balsamic Apple Topping
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
• 4 salmon fillets or steaks (about 1 pound)
• 2 teaspoons olive oil
• 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
• 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 2 tablespoons fresh snipped basil, mint, or rosemary
Preheat broiler with rack 4 inches from heat. Place salmon fillets on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Broil for 8-9 minutes or until opaque throughout.
Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Add apples and cook, stirring a few times, for about 5 minutes or until soft, but not mushy. Stir in the vinegar and honey, cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Serve the mixture over Salmon and top with herbs of your choice. (I also like to serve this dish with a side of brussel sprouts sautéed in butter.)
