Grilled Salmon in Balsamic Vinegar and Date “Honey”

15 Oct

This is so easy and yet so delicious, prepare the sauce, marinade, put in the oven, and ta-da.

The Silan, or date “honey”/date syrup (careful, don’t confuse it with silane, the chemical compound 🙂 ), and the balsamic vinegar add a sweet caramel coating to the salmon’s tender meat.

I often use date “honey” in my kitchen, it’s one of the best sweeteners, you can try substituting it with honey or with maple syrup.

The cooking gives the vinegar a different taste and smell (so those of you who are not so much into vinegar can still try this recipe), personally I think balsamic is the best, so I wouldn’t substitute it with other vinegars.


– 500 gr salmon (depending on the amount of hungry people, this was enough for me and my husband with some leftovers.)

– 3 tbs of good quality balsamic vinegar

– 3 tbs of good quality olive oil

– 1 tbs Silan (date “honey”)

– Coarse sea salt and grounded pepper

– Lemon for serving


– Mix the sauce ingredients: the  balsamic vinegar, the olive oil and the Silan.

– Marinade the salmon in sauce for about an hour in the fridge.

– Take the salmon out of the fridge, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and let it reach room temp.

– Preheat the oven to 180 deg. Celsius on grill.

– Grill the salmon for about 20-30 min, until it’s done, depending on the size of your fillet.

– Serve with lemon and with the quinoa salad in my next post.

Have a lovely weekend,
