Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
10 mins 20 mins 30 mins 4 servings


  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Special Notes:

  • You can use fresh or frozen cranberries to make the cranberry sauce. If using frozen, make sure to thaw them before making the sauce.
  • If you prefer a sweeter glaze, you can add an extra tablespoon of honey.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Cook over medium heat until the sauce is heated through and well combined, about 5 minutes.
  3. Place the salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Spoon the cranberry balsamic glaze over the salmon, making sure to coat each fillet evenly.
  4. Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets.
  5. Once cooked, remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.
