BALSAMIC GLAZED SALMON

BALSAMIC GLAZED SALMON

1/2 C Balsamic vinegar
1/4 C brown sugar
2 salmon filets
garlic salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1/4 C fresh cilantro, torn

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.  In small saucepan, heat balsamic vinegar to boiling.  Stir in brown sugar; lower heat and let simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Sprinkle both sides of salmon with garlic salt and pepper to taste.  Place salmon, skin side down, on baking sheet.  Arrange cilantro on top of salmon.  Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.  Drizzle balsamic glaze over salmon before serving.

Unfortunately, I got a little happy and "over-drizzled" the glaze, so it isn't a pretty picture.  However, it was dee-lish!

Thank you both for your comments. Michelle- that's my goal; to get everyone cooking! :)
Rebecca- Salmon is very good for you. We don't eat it all the time, but lately, I've been on a salmon kick, and we're loving it.
