Directions

  1. Mix together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Arrange the salmon fillets in a shallow baking dish. Rub garlic onto the fillets, then pour the vinegar and oil over them, turning once to coat. Season with cilantro, basil, and garlic salt. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat your oven's broiler.
  3. Place the salmon about 6 inches from the heat source, and broil for 15 minutes, turning once, or until browned on both sides and easily flaked with a fork. Brush occasionally with the sauce from the pan.

Looking for a new way to make salmon, and this one turned out well. I omitted cilantro because I do not like it, but added a bit of rosemary and thyme in its place. Friend suggested adding a bit of diced tomato and chopped ripe olives to mixture - which I will do the next time I make this. Served with rice pilaf and steamed spinach for a quick and easy "healthy" dinner. Thanks, Ariel101.

Would've rated it 3 1/2 if I could. It wasn't bad - not amazing but not bad. I should've read the reviews ahead of time (which I usually do) because it was a bit oily as written. Tasted good but I've had better on this site so I'll probably stick to those.

We spread about 2 T minced garlic over the salmon, brushed with olive oil and balsamic (not the whole amount) and covered with chopped fresh basil. We baked without turning instead of broiling. It couldn't have been better.

This is a good, simple recipe for salmon. The salmon flavor really comes through, and is not hidden by the other ingredients. I cut both the olive oil and vinegar in half, and it was more than enough to cover my 1 pound-plus salmon filet. You don't need that much oil/vinegar. I also only used 3 garlic cloves, because I was serving something else garlicky. I didn't have any cilantro, so I tripled the basil. And finally, I only sprinkled on a little garlic salt, it would have been way too salty with all of it. Went well with Calabrese Style Spaghetti (from this site) and fresh corn on the cob.

This one is a five star after making a few adjustments. This recipe was just crying out for fresh rosemary rather than cilantro, and I'm so glad I made that call. I left out the garlic salt, just going with the fresh garlic rub, as I didn't see the need for it. The marinade went over salmon steaks which we placed on the bbq, herb side up, turning after 10 minutes and cooking for a total of 15. Absolutely divine. Amazing flavor.

This recipe is superb!!! My kids and I loved it, and I know my husband will love it too!! I did cut back on the olive oil. (used about 1/4 - 1/3 cup instead) Didn't have cliantro so I used Italian Parsley in it's place. EXCELLENT!!!

Really enjoyed it! I made it with something else and so cooked at 400F, turning once, and then broiled for 5 min. I didn't have cilantro, but I'm going to get it for next time. I found it worked well. I agree that it didn't require as much olive oil - I'm going to try 1/4 cup next time. Cheers!

Both my boyfriend and myself really loved this marinade. It works just as well on swordfish and is so quick and easy that I will definitely make this again.
