Balsamic Salmon and cauliflower poppers

Balsamic Salmon:
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp water
1.5 tsp honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 salmon fillets

Line baking dish with foil, coat in cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, saute garlic in oil until tender. Stir in vinegar, mustard, water, honey, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 3-5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside 2 tbsp for basting.
Place fillets on prepared pan. Brush with sauce. Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 12-15 minutes (depends how you like your salmon) until salmon flakes. Brush with reserved sauce.

Cauliflower poppers: 1 head of cauliflower cut in pieces tossed with 1/8 cup olive oil, salt & pepper. Baked at 425 for one hour, tossed every 20 minutes.

We had this with wild rice. The salmon was very flavorful, and the cauliflower I could of eaten for a snack - right off the pan! Delicious!
