This balsamic-glazed salmon has tender salmon basted and drizzled with a sauce made from balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, garlic and Dijon mustard.


Units Scale
  • 1 lb. salmon fillet


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced / 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine the sauce ingredients and stir to mix. Divide sauce into half.
  2. Marinate the salmon fillet with half the sauce in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Arrange the salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet or casserole dish and bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon. Baste the salmon with the leftover marinade halfway through.
  4. Dish and serve hot drizzled with the other half of the sauce.
  5. Enjoy!


  • For crispy salmon, sear the salmon with some oil in a skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes before baking, or broil for 2-3 minutes in the oven before serving.
  • For a thicker drizzling sauce, bring the other half of the sauce to a simmer in a saucepan and reduce until thickened.
