Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add vinegar, syrup and mustard. Cook, stirring, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Place salmon portions on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and baste the salmon with the balsamic mixture. Continue baking until just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes more. Serve sprinkled with parsley (or cilantro), if desired.
