Balsamic-Glazed Salmon with Walnut Topping

by Alexandra

After a hard day of anything, there really is nothing better than a hot, home-cooked meal.
Sweet Balsamic-Glazed Salmon, Steamed Broccoli, Brown Rice, Fresh Tomatoes, and Cubed Acorn Squash.
Delicious.
Preheat the grill, and combine 1/5 cups rice with 3 cups of water in an 8×8 baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for 1 hour.

 

For the Balsamic Glaze, combine about 3 tablespoons of spicy brown mustard with 2 teaspoons of honey and 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar.
Add a few tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, too.
Next, whisk in some dried oregano, fresh black pepper, and lots of garlic powder.

In a separate bowl, combine a few tablespoons each of grated parmesan cheese, chopped walnuts, and bread crumbs. Set aside.

Lightly spray a foil-lined grill-pan with olive oil. Lay down the salmon filets, and cover lightly with another sheet of aluminum foil.
Grill for 3-5 minutes.
Brush the glaze on both sides of the partially cooked fish. Grill on the original side for another 3-5 minutes, then top with the walnut mixture, and continue to cook until opaque and flaky, but still moist and tender.
.
Steam some vegetables, or slice them up fresh, for healthy, delicious, colorful sides.
