Baked Salmon at Little Shop Gourmet

Baked Salmon with Lychee Balsamic Vinegar Dressing


  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup Lychee Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish 


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels.
  • Season both sides with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the olive oil.
  • Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Pour in the lychee balsamic vinegar, honey, and soy sauce.
  • Simmer the mixture until it thickens slightly and becomes syrupy, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Place the salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased.
  • Brush each fillet with the lychee balsamic dressing, reserving some for serving.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  • For a caramelized top, switch the oven to broil and broil the salmon for an additional 1-2 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning.
  • Carefully remove the salmon from the oven.
  • Drizzle the remaining lychee balsamic dressing over the fillets.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  • Serve the salmon with your choice of sides such as steamed broccoli and cherry tomatoes for a complete meal.
