Balsamic Reduction
  1. 8 oz balsamic vinegar

For the Balsamic Reduction
  1. In a small sauté pan, heat balsamic and honey until simmering. Turn to very low setting and reduce by half until the mixture is syrupy.
For the Salmon

  2. Grill the salmon face side down, once it is about ¼ of the way cooked through, turn the fish and grill it on the skin side.
  3. Cook the fish until almost cooked through, still a little medium rare in the center.
  4. Remove it to a platter to rest while you make the salad.
  5. The carry over cooking will finish the inside of the salmon to perfection.

  2. Distribute evenly amongst 4 large plates.
  3. Top with the sliced avocado, one quarter per salad.
