Meet pretty Kayla, of the blog Gracefully Vintage, who hails from Sydney, Australia. I enjoy looking at her beautiful Instagram feed which features her vintage outfits and a peek into her life, especially when  she’s enjoying summer and I’m freezing on the other side of the world.

The other day she posted this delicious-looking meal, and I begged her to share! She was kind enough to oblige.

Balsamic Glaze

“This glaze is great on fresh salmon, salad… Or most things really! It’s so delicious. I served it on pan fried salmon, sweet mashed potato (Kumera) and various steamed vegetables.” – Kayla


·         ¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar

·         1 & ½ Tablespoons of fresh lemon

·         1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar

·         ¼ cup of water


1.    Combine vinegar, water, lemon juice and brown sugar in a bowl and mix.

2.    Simmer in a pan to reduce mix for 2-3 minutes or until a little thicker.

For the rest of your meal:

Peel, cut and boil 2 sweet potatoes until fork -tender (about 7-10 minutes). Mash with a bit of soy or regular butter or margarine.

Steam 2 cups of your favorite veggies in a steamer or microwave in a microwave-safe container, covered, with 3 tbsp water, stirring once, for 4-6 minutes or until hot and tender.

Heat a large pan over medium-high heat with olive oil. Place 2 filets of salmon skin side down in pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook undisturbed for about 7 minutes or until well-browned and cooked about three quarters of the way through. Turn fillets, and cook about 3 minutes more, or until just barely pink in the center.

Serve salmon immediately  over a bed of mashed sweet potatoes and along with the steamed veggies. Top salmon with glaze.
