  3. Whisk balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and garlic together in a bowl; spoon over salmon fillets. Sprinkle with parsley; drizzle any remaining butter over fillets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with aluminum foil for 3 minutes before serving.

I thought this turned out very well. I just sprinkled lemon juice on top and estimated the liquid ingredients. It is a simple sauce that does go well on salmon, and although I cooked one filet a bit longer, it was a larger size so needed it. thanks for the recipe!

I followed the recipe but used Olivio spray instead of the melted margarine. I thought it was sooo easy and very tasty. My husband, who can take or leave salmon, really liked it!

I didn't have lemon and used maple syrup instead of white sugar... but it turned out very yummy! We don't have salmon often but this was a very easy and satisfying way to prepare it :)
