This was an awesome change from our usual way of eating salmon and the balsamic sauce was tangy and quite delicious with the fish. This recipe is a keeper.
SEARED SALMON WITH BALSAMIC GLAZE:
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. water
1 1/2 T. lemon juice
4 t. packed light brown sugar
4 salmon fillets
2 t. vegetable oil
Stir together vinegar, water, lemon juice, and brown sugar. Pat the salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a 12" non stick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Increase heat to high and sear salmon, skin sides up, until well browned, about 4 minutes. Turn fish over and sear until just cooked through, 3-4 minutes more. Transfer salmon to plates and carefully add vinegar mixture to skillet (liquid will bubble vigorously and steam) Simmer stirring until thickened and reduced to about 1/2 c. about 2 minutes. Spoon the glaze over the salmon.

My pictures weren't that great tonight. My boys were in a hurry to eat and I didn't have time to set up a good shot. It was delicious. Trust me.
