Planning on staying in and preparing your own Valentine's Day meal? Valentine's dinner menus almost always include some type of seafood from shrimp cocktail to a flakey sea bass filet sitting pretty next to a juicy steak filet.
A quick and delicious idea to dress up your seafood for the occasion at home is to use to a Balsamic reduction glaze on your fish, scallops or shrimp! Here is an easy recipe for a perfect balsamic reduction to not only complement your seafood(and even steak) but also a great way to jazz up your plate presentation to make you feel like you're sitting in a 5 star restaurant.
You only need 10 minutes and 1 ingredient, Balsamic Vinegar, for the reduction. If you want to make a glaze just add a sweetener of your choice (coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, etc.) to the vinegar. Are there more complex recipes out there? Sure! But this is guaranteed fool-proof and leaves you time to focus on grilling those scallops, fish, or steak filets to perfection!
It's that simple! Don't forget to get creative with plate presentation-- Hearts, I Love You, Be Mine, etc!
