Salmon witha Balsamic Glaze
Baked Salmon with Balsamic Glaze Served on a wreath of Greens
This is one of my go to recipes especially if I am trying to impress some one the presentation alone will knock your socks off. I always serve on a wreath of spinach or field greens with the vegetable as a garnish. This time we made carrots because it was easy, however, I have served it with fresh uncooked vegetables too. Like sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes or even marinated artichoke hearts it all depends on my mood. However, I always serve it with Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes.
