Ingredients

  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • salt and pepper, to taste (I use about 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 7 tablespoons honey divided
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved or quartered
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • cracked black pepper for topping

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil. Continue to cook 10-12 minutes until liquid has reduced by half. Stir in 4 tablespoons of honey and simmer for another 2-5 minute or until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Transfer to a heat-safe bowl or jar to cool while you cook the salmon.
  • Season salmon with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large pan or skillet. Stir in the remaining 3 tablespoons of honey.
  • Transfer salmon to a skillet and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, being sure not to move the salmon while cooking, then flip the salmon over and cook for another 6-8 minutes until cooked through and browned on both sides. 
  • Top salmon with tomatoes and cracked black pepper. Drizzle with the honey balsamic glaze, then top with parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Serve immediately. 

Notes

Sometimes I liked to add 1/4 teaspoon each salt and garlic powder to the balsamic vinegar for a bigger punch of flavor. Completely optional!
