It’s perfect as it is, so I think it’s best to leave it alone. I was really surprised to discover that this simple glaze might actually be an improvement over sockeye all-by-itself.
The Sockeye run is huge this year, so it should be easy to find. Once you get one, you’ll need to decide whether to eat your salmon wonderfully naked or gloriously cooked in Balsamic Fig glaze.
- Are salmon safe to eat?
- Are our salmon safe?
I addresses these last two questions in part 1 of this post.
But the first one? I address here:
Balsamic~Fig glazed Salmon (AIP & WahlsPaleo+)
- 1 fillet sockeye salmon
- 2 ripe figs
- 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 or heat up the BBQ.
Whirl the figs, vinegar & salt in a food processor.
Lay the filet, skin side down, on a baking sheet (parchment paper eases clean up later). Spoon the glaze over the fillet and bake for 15 minutes, until the salmon flakes when you nudge it with the tines of a fork.
Or, using a BBQ tray, cook the salmon in the hot BBQ, similarly.
Or it can also be the I-have-no-figs variation…
Replace the figs with 1/2 cup blueberries.
