Recipe: Blackberry Balsamic Salmon
Recently, one of my hubby's co-workers gave him a beautiful slab of steelhead. Or was it salmon? I can't remember and they look and taste similar, but it doesn't matter, I love it all. To say I was excited was an understatement. I have many ways I like to prepare it, but wanted to try something a little different.
This recipe is easy, adaptable and worthy of the President..hee hee! All you need are a few simple ingredients. I know, I know...I don't have measurements. Some things just have to go by taste.
1. Place salmon on a foil lined pan and preheat oven to 400
2. Sprinkle salmon with onion powder, garlic powder and pepper.
3. In a bowl add blackberry jam. Gradually add balsamic vinegar, tasting as you go until you are satisfied. You want a slightly sweet, slightly vinegary flavor.
4. Bake salmon in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Spread vinegar/jam mixture over salmon and continue baking until desired doneness. Some people like their salmon a little pink, my hubby likes it completely done so cooking time will vary but typically between 15-30 minutes also depending on thickness of fillets.
