Balsamic Glazed Fish

I have some exciting news!  Well, it's exciting to me at least!!  Starting tomorrow, while I am doing my Fire Day Friday post, I'll be showcasing a new guest blogger.  I'm excited, because, for now at least, these will be blogs that I have recently found and fell in love with.  Not only will it give me a little break so I can focus on Fire Day Friday, but it will also help you find some new and interesting blogs, if you haven't found them already!!  So don't forget to check in tomorrow for my first guest blogger....!!!  I wonder who it will be???  :)

Here is a statement you may have not heard me say before:  Balsamic glaze makes everything taste better.  Ok, maybe not everything, but this balsamic glaze does make this fish taste amazing!!  It's sweet, it's tart, it's wonderful!  This glaze would actually work on any type of fish, or it could even work on chicken, pork, or even's just that good!

Balsamic Glazed Fish
Adapted from Cooking Light
Printable Recipe 
1 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tilapia fillets (or any type of fish really)
2 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 teaspoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

In a small saucepan, combine the water, vinegar, sugar, soy, and cornstarch.  Bring to a boil and cook for 1-3 minutes, stirring constantly, or until the glaze has thickened.  Remove from heat and allow to cool just a bit.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.  Rinse the fish and pat dry.  Season both sides with salt and pepper and place in prepared dish.  Spoon half of the glaze over the fish and place in the oven.  Bake for 6 minutes.  Remove from oven and pour the remainder of the glaze over the fish.  Return to oven and continue baking for another 6-8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.  Enjoy!

Interesting recipe Jenn. I used balsamic vinegar on potatoes and it was delicious. I will have to try this on fish. I am looking forward to seeing who your guest bloggers will be. I LOVE finding new blogs!

I have a love/hate relationship with balsamic. Haven't used any in a long time. Maybe this recipe is just what I need!?

The fish sounds delish! And I'm soooo excited to see who your big guest blogger is...

Wanted to say thanks for your sweet words of support about my little 2 year old jailbird Cooper. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you for commenting on that post...It's been a bit of wild ride around here. Thank you again and I'll talk to you soon.

Lots of yummy love,

Looks good Jenn. Bev just bought a bottle of 25 year old Balsamic vinegar and for the price I may have to drink it straight.

Sounds good, Jenn. I'm going to use this glaze on chicken this weekend!

Oh I bet this was like a fancy teriyaki flavor, sweet, sour, delicious! Great use of balsamic :)

Oooh, I've never tried balsamic on fish! A new adventure awaits ... :)

Mary said...

I have to try this one. I'm always concerned with balsamic overpowering the taste of fish. I'll keep you posted. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Pretty sure the guest won't be me as I royally suck at cooking. But this sounds delicious!

Balsamic glaze is a standby in my cupboard. I love it. I used it once on cod and it was delish.
Must try it with tilapia next time.
I'm looking forward to your new Friday segment ;)
I'll be sending you an email very soon.
