Salmon with Marmalade-Balsamic Sauce

Recipe by  

"'I started experimenting with balsamic vinegar,' Jenifer-Joan Lauren says, 'and wanted to use it in more things.' She often serves salmon, and the vinegar soon became an integral part of a sauce for the fish. If desired, garnish portions with small rosemary sprigs. Jenifer-Joan Lauren, Maple Valley, Washington"

    25 mins


  1. Rinse salmon, pat dry, and lay skin down in a lightly oiled shallow 3-quart casserole (about 9 by 13 in.). Rub 1/4 teaspoon pepper over salmon.
  2. Bake in a 400 degrees F oven until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan over high heat, combine rosemary, marmalade, balsamic vinegar, and onion. Boil, stirring often, until reduced to 1/2 cup.
  4. Cut salmon into equal pieces; use a wide spatula to transfer to plates. Spoon onion mixture over and around salmon. Add salt to taste.

i made this for a solo dinner and used 1 thawed frozen salmon fillet and halved the recipe for the sauce. i also used apricot preserves instead of orange marmalade b/c that's what i had on hand. the sauce was glazy and sweet. very good and quick&easy to make. i had it with steamed green beans.

This was simple and delicious! I had a jar of marmalade in my fridge that never gets used. This took care of about half of it. I will make this again because it's very quick but it tastes like I slaved away in the kitchen. My husband says that it was great!

This is very easy to make and tastes great. The sauce works well over steamed spinach as well.

My husband is not a big fan of fish, but even he was absolutely in love with this dish!
