    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
    2. Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; add garlic and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Mix in white wine, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Take off the heat and add oregano.
    3. Arrange salmon fillets on prepared baking tray. Brush fillets with balsamic glaze.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 14 minutes, or until flesh flakes easily with a fork. Brush fillets with remaining glaze. Use a fish slice to transfer fillets to serving platter, leaving the skin behind on the tray.


    Try serving these salmon fillets over a baby leaf salad, and use extra glaze for the dressing. Add chopped spring onions and julienned red pepper to round out the salad.

    My family gave this dish the thumbs up. I didn't want to open a bottle of wine just for 1 spoon so used white wine vinegar instead!! It worked and the flavours were lovely. Really quick and easy.  -  02 Apr 2012
