Ingredients Balsamic Glaze:
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, divided
- ½ teaspoon garlic clove, finely minced
Ingredients for Salmon:
- 2 (5 oz.) salmon fillets
- 1 lemon, cut in half
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Squeeze ½ lemon over salmon and let it rest for 10 minutes at room temperature. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine balsamic vinegar, white wine, honey, dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon rosemary, and garlic. Heat mixture over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer over medium-low heat until sauce has thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat broiler. Line a baking pan with foil.
Add both salmon fillets to the baking pan. Sprinkle each with lots of lemons and drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Season each piece with a little salt and pepper. Place in broiler and cook until salmon is browned about 3 minutes. Carefully flip salmon to the opposite side and continue to broil for about 3 minutes, until cooked through.
Plate each piece of salmon. Drizzle half the warmed glaze over each piece. Sprinkle the top of each with ¼ teaspoon chopped rosemary.

Salmon is high in protein and is a rich source of vitamins A and B-group vitamins. Salmon is a good source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Perhaps, most important, salmon contains Omega-3 oil, which decreases the risk of coronary heart disease and certain cancers.
Store balsamic vinegar in a cool, dry place, such as a pantry. Unopened it will keep almost indefinitely; once opened, it can be stored up to 6 months at room temperature.
