|1/3 cup||balsamic vinegar|
|1 tsp||dried sage|
|2 cloves||garlic (peeled and crushed)|
|2 tsp||olive oil|
|2 4 ounce||salmon filets|
Place the balsamic vinegar, honey, sage, garlic cloves, and salt in a small saucepan over medium high heat.
When the sauce is near boiling, reduce the heat to very low and let it reduce until there is about 4 tablespoons of sauce.
Remove and let cool slightly, then strain through a fine mesh strainer. Discard the solids and set the liquid aside.
Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 375°F.
When the oven is hot, add the olive oil to the pan and then the salmon filets.
Spoon half of the balsamic glaze over the salmon, then place the pan in the oven and roast for about 8 minutes.
Turn the salmon over and coat with the remaining glaze. Roast for another 4 to 6 minutes.
