Okay, mixing balsamic vinegar with fruity flavors like raspberry and orange does sound a little weird at first—but trust us on this one.

Ever drizzle balsamic on watermelon, for example? Its salty profile actually tastes amazing balanced with sweetness.

And as a glaze, it will transform your boring piece of plain salmon into a gourmet meal in minutes.

15 minutes

1 Serving


6 fresh raspberries

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed orange juice

1/4 teaspoon orange peel

1/2 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon red wine

4 ounces skinless salmon fillet, preferably wild (about 3⁄4" thick)



Salmon with Raspberry-Balsamic Glaze
  1. Mash the raspberries and vinegar with a fork in a small bowl. Stir in the orange juice, orange peel, honey, and wine until combined. Set aside.
  2. Coat a nonstick skillet with canola oil cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook the salmon about 4 minutes per side, or until the fish is cooked through. Set aside. Remove the skillet from the heat and carefully wipe away any liquid with a paper towel.
  3. Return the skillet to medium heat and add the reserved raspberry mixture. Stirring constantly, cook 2 minutes, or until just thickened.
  4. Pour the sauce over the salmon and serve with asparagus on the side.


You know salmon’s a great source of omega-3s, those fatty acids that are great for your heart and brain. But did you know it also provides vitamin D and selenium?  Add in antioxidant-rich raspberries, and you’ve got a powerful, delicious dinner.
