Add glaze ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat.
Bring to a boil, then simmer 2-3 minutes, or until glaze turns syrupy and glaze-y. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat about 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil in a medium oven-proof pan over medium heat.
Season salmon with salt and pepper on both sides, and add to the hot pan.
Cook 2 minutes on each side (will release easily from pan when ready to flip). Should be a golden brown. on the surface.
Remove from the heat – and place the pan in the preheated oven. Bake 5-8 minutes, or to your liking (will depend on thickness and size of your salmon).
To serve - place a salmon fillet on each plate and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
