Broiled Salmon with Balsamic Vinegar

9:00 AM EDT on May 26, 2023

A fast and easy way to maximize the flavor of one of the world's healthiest fish.

Salmon is a "super food" because of its high-levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which do serious work battling heart disease, type-2 diabetes, bad cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Super, indeed. We at Appetito also think that salmon works wonderfully prepared Italian-style, and here's a broiled salmon with Balsamic vinegar recipe that uses a legendary Italian ingredient, Aceto Balsamico di Modena*. The fish is broiled to create a tangy, mahogany coat that beautifully counters the natural oils and orange flesh of our "super" fish.

* Yes, you can use generic balsamic vinegar readily available in supermarkets around America, but we highly recommend stocking your pantry with the real stuff: Aceto Balsamico di Modena. Our favorites include Giusti and Carandini.
