  • Dip salmon fillets in melted margarine, covering both sides. Place in a baking dish. Squeeze lemons evenly over each fillet.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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. Read More

I felt that this recipe was bland as written. So, I seasoned each filet with black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Next time I will add a little ginger. It is a good recipe with the changes made. Read More

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! Read More

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:) Read More

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! Read More

I bake salmon about once a week and was looking for something different to switch things up. Loved this-- simple to whip together and tasted great! I'll be using this one again! Read More

very nice and easy. my wife was a little scared when she saw the sauce but liked it a lot. I made the sauce about one hour before starting and let it sit in the frig to let the ingredients marry. I think it brought out the combined flavoring of the sauce better. I also added a very little bit of shiracha into the sauce for a little heat. Read More

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! Read More

Made this last night. I don't cook fish too often; I'm always afraid I'll the overcook the fish. I loved the flavor blend of balsamic vinegar sugar soy sauce and garlic! So easy to make: ) Read More
