Delicious and Crispy
Making crispy-skinned salmon at home may seem like an elusive dream that you’ll only ever experience at the world’s finest restaurants.
The crispy skin, acts as a juicy, tasty shield. But the detail that makes this a favourite is in the glaze…
Crispy Fresh Salmon with a Balsamic Glaze
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup water
1½ tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
1½ tablespoon light brown sugar
4 center-cut pieces of fresh salmon, fillets with skin (boneless )
black pepper, freshly ground
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1. For the glaze: In a small bowl, stir together balsamic vinegar, water, lemon juice, and brown sugar.
2. Pat dry the salmon very well and season with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over a moderately high heat until hot, but not smoking.
3.Add salmon, skin side up, and sear until well browned, about 4 minutes. Press the fillet against the skillet with your fish spatula, and turn the heat down to medium-low. Turn the fish over and sear until just cooked through, an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Carefully transfer the salmon to serving plates. Add the glaze to the skillet. Simmer stirring for about 2 minutes, until thickened and reduced to about a ⅓ cup (liquid will bubble vigorously and steam). Pour the glaze over salmon and serve.
