Recipe and photo by Sara Newberry

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 shallot, minced

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

1 tablespoon honey

Salt and pepper

Heat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place salmon skin side down on prepared baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. 

In a small skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot. Add shallot and saute until soft, about 2 minutes. Whisk in vinegar, mustard and honey. Simmer until reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Brush glaze on salmon and bake for 5 minutes.

Remove salmon from oven, brush with glaze again, and bake an additional 10-12 minutes until cooked through.
