Serves 4; 3 ounces fish per serving
Use simple ingredients likely to be found in your kitchen to create a far-from-ordinary glaze for this easy entrée.
1½ tablespoons light mayonnaise
1½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1½ teaspoons sesame seeds
¾ teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
¾ teaspoon olive oil
1 medium garlic clove, minced
4 skinless salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each), rinsed and patted dry
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spray a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.
Spoon the mayonnaise into a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the vinegar until smooth. Whisk in the remaining ingredients except the fish.
Put the fish in the baking pan. Lightly spread the mayonnaise mixture over the top and sides of each fillet.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
