It’s mmmmm…Monday "Elegant Salmon Mignons"

Elegant Salmon Mignons
Prep Time: 15 minutes, Cook Time: 15 minutes, Serves 2-3

Salmon is a favorite in our house. We love to test out new recipes to enhance the fresh salmon flavor. The uniform thickness of these pinwheels makes  broiling super easy and the pinwheel allows the seasoning to saturate the fish. Good balsamic (Bariani’s Balsamic Vinegar is my local favorite) makes all the difference.


  • Generous sprinkling (4-5 Tablespoons) good balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into six ¾-inch strips
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon slices
  • Olive oil

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven’s broiler to 500 degrees; set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. 
  2. Combine the balsamic vinegar and the garlic in a small bowl; reserve. 
  3. Sprinkle the salmon with kosher salt. Roll the salmon strips, beginning on the thickest side, into 6 pinwheels. Secure with wooden skewers.
  4. Coat the pan in olive oil and drizzle oil over the fish and let it saturate. Drizzle the balsamic and garlic mixture generously over each pinwheel. Place fresh lemon slice on top of each pinwheel.
  5. Place salmon under hot broiler and cook for 7 minutes. Turn pinwheels over and replace lemon slices; cook until edges are brown and fish is easily flaked with a fork, about an additional 7 minutes. 
  6. Sprinkle with pepper before serving and enjoy! Reviews in our house? It was pronounced “delightful!”

Round out the meal: Serve with your choice of green vegetable steamed or stir fried. Zucchini pairs well with the salmon.

Wine recommendation: Serve with chilled white wine (Pinot Grigio makes an excellent pairing).
