Balsamic Glazed Salmon

In less than 1/2 hour you can enjoy this tender baked salmon, topped with a savory sauce that gently enhances the flavor without overwhelming it.



  • Place the fish into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with the black pepper and drizzle with the oil.
  • Bake at 350°F. for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  • Grate 1 teaspoon zest and squeeze 1 tablespoon juice from the orange.
  • Heat the cornstarch, broth, vinegar, brown sugar, orange juice and orange zest in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Cook and stir until the mixture thickens. Top the salmon with the orange slices and serve with the sauce.
  • Cooking Basics: When grating the zest from citrus fruits you’ll want to avoid grating too deeply. There’s a white layer between the zest and the flesh, called the pith, which can be bitter.
