This Cherry Tomato Balsamic Salmon will change your life.
This isn’t your run-of-the-mill bland salmon. This cherry tomato balsamic salmon is a sweet and tannic combination that really makes the flavor profile of this dish straight explosive. The salmon is a crispy skinned salmon, so don’t remove the skin from the salmon unless you absolutely want to. The reduction by itself could liven up anything from salad to pasta, but paired with the salmon these two make the best dynamic duo of all time… minus the capes.
The tomato and balsamic reduction is meant to balance out the salmon, so be sure that you get a bit of both in every bite, otherwise the reduction by itself is overpowering. This salmon is a nice one to serve up with some warm crusty bread and a plate of shredded Parmesan cheese. Mop up the balsamic reduction left on the plate after eating the salmon and dip it in the Parmesan cheese. If you’ve never had this, it’ll change your life… and there’s no going back. You’re welcome.
