Balsamic glaze on salmon is a game changer recipe. This classy recipe, pairs nicely with white wine and roasted veggies. 

Balsamic salmon with roasted asparagus and sweet potato is simple and you can use the balsamic dressings with honey on salads, veggies or even chicken throughout the week.  I’m all about ways to save money on groceries. Recipe ingredients with multiple uses are always a win, if you ask me. Speaking of salad dressings, really any of them work as salmon marinades when baking or grilling! Get creative! Wrapping salmon in foil is an easy way of cooking fish.

Tip: Try not to go overboard with high calorie sauces and remember to always read the label if you’re not making a homemade balsamic glaze or dressing. Honey is an added sugar so it’s important to use in moderation.

Also, I am obsessed with the Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning on roasted vegetables. Everything but the Bagel asparagus, Everything but the Bagel broccoli, Everything but the Bagel green beans, you name it.  It’s a staple vegetable seasoning to have on hand and to use with any sheet pan vegetable recipe. Balsamic salmon with roasted asparagus is a keeper on the weeknight menu.
