  4. Garnish with chopped parsley and drizzle of Extra virgin olive oil.

Balsamic reduction

  1. In a saucepan over high heat, bring the 1-cup of balsamic vinegar to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer. Gently stirring occasionally to prevent from burning.
  2. Add I teaspoon of sugar stirring until it dissolves. Cook down by half or two-thirds until the vinegar is syrupy and coats the back of a metal spoon.
  3. As the vinegar reduces it will naturally sweeten. If you wish it to be sweeter, add more sugar during the cooking process.
