This Balsamic Salmon is a super easy recipe that makes a fabulous lunch or a healthy dinner–in just minutes!
Salmon is so easy to make! I buy frozen individually-packaged fillets so I can have them on hand. Then, it’s easy to defrost them in the fridge before cooking.
There are plenty of simple ways to prepare salmon, but I love this one because it doesn’t use any butter. I’ve been eating healthier, and this way there’s no extra fat and calories from butter. Salmon is such a great source of protein, and it also has omega-3 fatty acids.
I use a grill pan on my electric stove, but you can also bake salmon very quickly. If you’re baking, plan on about 12-15 minutes at 400 degrees.
For this simple recipe, marinate the salmon in balsamic vinaigrette dressing for at least 15 minutes. You can also let the fish defrost in the marinade while it’s in the fridge.
I use my Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing recipe. When you make your own, you avoid the extra sugar and preservatives over store-bought. It tastes so fresh!
After grilling the salmon, be sure to discard the marinade. Use fresh dressing to top your salad, or serve it alongside your family’s favorite side dishes, like Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
