For the Salmon:
4 salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Honey Balsamic Glaze:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Prepare the Salmon: Season the 4-ounce salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

Cook the Salmon: In a large oven-proof skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the salmon, skin-side up, and sear for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Flip the salmon and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 4-6 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

Make the Glaze: While the salmon is baking, whisk together balsamic vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, and minced garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the glaze has thickened slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve: Drizzle the honey balsamic glaze over the cooked salmon. Serve immediately with your choice of sides, such as roasted vegetables or a fresh salad.

This recipe will yield perfectly cooked, 4-ounce salmon fillets with a delightful honey balsamic glaze, ideal for a tasty, healthy meal. Enjoy!
