Salt and pepper to taste

2 Salmon fillets (4 oz each)



  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, white wine, Dijon mustard, garlic, oregano, peppercorns, salt and pepper.
  3. Place salmon in a baking dish and drizzle with prepared marinade.
  4. Bake salmon for 15-20 minutes until salmon flakes with a fork.
