  2. Dip salmon fillets in melted margarine, covering both sides. Place in a baking dish. Squeeze lemons evenly over each fillet.
  3. Whisk balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and garlic together in a bowl; spoon over salmon fillets. Sprinkle with parsley; drizzle any remaining butter over fillets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with aluminum foil for 3 minutes before serving.

I thought this turned out very well. I just sprinkled lemon juice on top and estimated the liquid ingredients. It is a simple sauce that does go well on salmon, and although I cooked one filet a bit longer, it was a larger size so needed it. thanks for the recipe!

I followed the recipe but used Olivio spray instead of the melted margarine. I thought it was sooo easy and very tasty. My husband, who can take or leave salmon, really liked it!

I didn't have lemon and used maple syrup instead of white sugar... but it turned out very yummy! We don't have salmon often but this was a very easy and satisfying way to prepare it :)

We have been making this dish for a while, it's one of our favorite ways to prepare salmon. The balsamic sauce is so delicious, just simply drizzle a little of the sauce on a salad and you're ready to go! Sometimes I substitute brown sugar for the white. Thanks for posting this, I can't believe I haven't reviewed it already.

I made this tonight. The only thing I changed was instead of butter, I sprayed fish with Pam spray. It was delicious! I used it on the salmon and the tilapia (2 of us don't like salmon) and it came out perfect! My husband was thrilled, as I am not usually a creative cook with the salmon. I have bookmarked this recipe and will definitely use it again!

Mmmmm! I really enjoyed this recipe. I only had 2 salmon filets, so I halved all of the other ingredients except the garlic; I added 1 minced clove. I will definitely make this recipe again!
