This grilled peach balsamic fillets recipe is everything ! How can one improve on perfection ? You can’t ! You can only compliment perfection, and such is the case with this salmon fillets recipe.
Very few foods out there come close to the wholesome perfection of a wild caught salmon fillet. Taste so clean and wonderful you can eat it raw, yet little touches here and there could make it a treat to remember.
Believe it or not, this salmon fillets recipe is ready in 10 minutes, and that includes the time it takes you to reduce a balsamic vinegar glaze and grill some peaches.
I love to broil the salmon fillets, not only because it is super fast, but also because it keeps them buttery and succulent. So I season them well all over the top and let them do their thing under the broiler flames while I grill some yellow peaches and the balsamic vinegar glaze reduces itself to heavenly perfection.
I’ve tried quite a few variation of balsamic salmon in my kitchen, from baking them to roasting them in foil, I’ve tried them all. And with all the confidence in the word, I can tell you that this broiled version of salmon fillets recipe is absolute perfection.
I serve them on a bed of black rice, surrounded by the grilled peaches and drizzled with the balsamic vinegar glaze. A few fragrant leaves of basil are the ultimate garnish for all those delicate flavors.
This balsamic salmon fillets recipe is one of the most delicious dishes of salmon I’ve ever tasted, and I’ve tasted a lot of salmon.
Worth noting here, when shopping for peaches to grill make sure you pick the ones a little bit firm. Not hard as a rock but firm, otherwise they will be mushy when grilled.
Because the balsamic vinegar glaze is the complimentary factor in this salmon fillets recipe, make sure it is perfectly executed. We are using a good quality honey here, the best you can get your hands on, you only need 2 tbsp. No processed sugars allowed. Very important not to drench the salon fillets in the balsamic glaze. It is meant to be like s sweet kiss only, if that makes sense…
Last but not least, I wouldn’t even attempt to make this salmon fillets recipe with anything but wild caught salmon. I’m sure you already know why. Same goes for my other favorite, the blackened wild caught Alaskan salmon recipe.

- 2 salmon fillets. wild caught
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp sea sat + more to taste

To make the balsamic reduction: In a small saucepan add the balsamic vinegar and honey and stir to combine well. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes or so until reduced by half. The balsamic reduction should coat the back of a spoon nicely when ready. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Lightly oil a broiler proof dish and set the salmon fillets on it skin side down. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season all over the top with the sea salt, pepper flakes, garlic powder and black pepper. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets.
Meanwhile heat up a cast iron grill pan on medium flame. Lightly oil it with a drop of olive oil. Grill the peach wedges for a couple of minutes on each side until nice grill marks form.
Serve the broiled salmon fillets over a bed of black lime rice, alongside the grilled peaches and drizzle with the balsamic reduction. Garnish with the basil leaves and blossoms.
